What You Can Expect

New York High Line Park Walking Tour

High Line Park, New York City

The High Line, aka High Line Park, is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33-km) New York City park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of old New York Central Railroad called the West Side Line. The High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and rails-to-trails park.

This two-hour walking tour runs the full length of the park, from the Tiffany and Co. Foundation Overlook — with a view eastward to the Meatpacking District and westward to the Whitney Museum of American Art — to the CSX Transportation Gate.

In between, there are sundecks and more overlooks to see. There’s also a two-block-long pathway that winds through a miniature forest of dogwoods, bottlebrush buckeye, hollies, roses, and other dense shrubs and trees, plus a grove of bigleaf magnolia, sassafras and serviceberry trees. There’s even some of the wild landscape that grew up on the High Line before it was a park, like crab apple trees, asters, sedges, goldenrods and alumroot.

On this tour, there will also be a chance to visit Pier 54, where the survivors of the Titanic arrived, and the old Nabisco factory at Chelsea Market, where the original Oreo Cookie was invented.

Recently spent the morning with Annie our guide on the New York on the High Line Park Walking Tour.
Annie was very well informed, interesting and fun and highlighted many points of interest around the Meat Packing District, Chelsea Markets and the High Line.
The High Line now extends to 34th Street which was an added bonus. I would definitely recommend this tour.

While we could have walked this ourselves what a treat to be guided by someone as knowledgeable as Annie was. She was great! We wound up being in a small group of 4 and it was well worth the cost.

Loved it! Tour Guide, Anne, was great.. We had her all to ourselves..just my and my husband.
So nice to get an inside view from a real New York City resident. We like to take tours for that reason! It was a beautiful day and really fun!

We had a great tour with Bill. He provided a lot of interesting facts about the area how the High Line Park came to be. It really is an oasis of calm and beauty when walking n Manhattan and we loved it.
