Stroll down New York's High Line, an abandoned railway that has been converted into an urban oasis, discover Chelsea Market and explore the historic Meatpacking District on this walking tour of some of Manhattan's coolest spots.
High Line, Chelsea & Meatpacking District Tour
Meet at the entrance of the High Line, an abandoned elevated railroad that used to carry goods to the city's factories and warehouses, and which has now been turned into a beautiful park. Running between Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, the greenway is covered in different wildflowers and plants inspired by those that grew naturally over the disused train tracks.
Stretching around one and a half miles (over 2 km) along the west side of Manhattan, the High Line is an urban oasis which offers unforgettable views over the New York skyline. See the Empire State Building and even the Statue of Liberty at different points along the route. The park is also home to outdoor art installations, making it a truly unique space in the city.
As you enjoy walking down the High Line, you'll learn all about the history of the green space as part of the Meatpacking District. Can you guess how the area got this name? The former food factories and industrial plants dotted around the neighbourhood are a big hint...
You'll continue walking north via the High Line, discovering the art galleries and fashion boutiques along the way, stopping at the famous Chelsea Market. In this former biscuit factory - the place where the first Oreo was made - you'll have the opportunity to explore the different food stalls and sample the endless delicacies on offer in this hipster shopping area.
