This two-hour walking tour of High Line Park takes you through the trendy Meatpacking District and into the Collier Publishing building, then along the 1.45 mile (2.33-kilometer) length of the park, which was once this elevated rail track. Your professional, knowledgeable guide will take you from the beginning of the Manhattan's West Side history through to the inception of the High Line, while identifying the unique plant life now inhabiting the former railroad tracks.
This region has been developed with public art, and the native greenery has been incorporated with the long forgotten tracks to create a spectacular, dynamic park.

You will also have the opportunity to visit the White Star Pier, where the survivors of Titanic disembarked, as well as the old Nabisco factory, where the Oreo Cookie was invented.

Our guide, Annie, was great - a real New Yorker. Loved the tour of Chelsea Market that she gave us before the High Line Park tour as well.

Excellent tour! Since it was a cold, windy day, we had Annie D., the Guide, all to ourselves. She was outstanding and had a great knowledge of the early history of NYC. We could also pace the tour to a speed with which we were comfortable. We would recommend this tour to everyone and recommend Annie as a Tour Guide for every tour. This was a wonderful, enlightening and memorable day for us!
