High Line and Hudson Yards Tour

Take a journey from New York’s past to its future!

On this guided tour of Manhattan’s west side, we will journey from the historic Meatpacking District up to the growing Hudson Yards neighborhood via the popular High Line park. Your guided walking tour will began in Manhattan’s historic Meatpacking District, a corridor of food production for nearly a century. See how the area has been preserved while also evolving into a trendy neighborhood of boutique shops and restaurants. It is there that we will enter the High Line park, before beginning our beautiful journey uptown.

All throughout our walk along the High Line, your guide will discuss the history of this former freight rail line and how it evolved, with historical photos for reference. The guide will also show you the hidden secrets of the park… how the rail tracks are used today, its old loading docks now hidden in plain sight, and more. This park is a lush greenway with amazing views. Its plant life (hundreds of species!) is designed to thrive in all times of year. You will also see the ever-changing art displays along this line. You will discover why this park has grown to be a New York City must-see destination. As we make our way north, you will see fascinating historic architecture, as well as new developments by Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Bjarke Ingels, and many more.

Finally, the Hudson Yards will quickly come into view. The largest private development project in NYC history, this project is literally birthing an entire new neighborhood on top of the Hudson rail-yards! It is a massive sight that will blow you away! Your guide will explain the history of this project, which has continued to grow in ambition, even as its first phase has now opened. You will see numerous new skyscrapers rising up, including the western hemisphere’s tallest outdoor observation deck, as well as new parks and public art destinations. See the Vessel, the Shed performing arts center, and more! Come discover the new west side!
