This was a most enjoyable tour. The boat ride was great, and the crew friendly and efficient. We loved the tour, too, and the High Line was quite a surprise, I didn't even know it existed though I live in NY.

Starting at Chelsea Piers, once home to the White Star and Cunard Lines, Matt leads you on a 90 minute walking tour through Chelsea and through the story that leads up to the High Line Park – a former industrial railway of the 1930’s that is now Manhattan’s newest and most celebrated park.
