Explore the High Line in NYC, a 1.45-mile-long linear park, created on the disused southern portion of the West Side Line running to the Lower West Side of Manhattan. After construction completion of all sections of the green oasis in the middle of the city, the park is fully open to public since September 2014 with nearly 5 million visitors crossing the greenway annually. It's no secret why so many people come to the park each year - no other park in New York is more diverse and obviously higher than the High Line. With about 20 to 30 feet above the roadway, you have an excellent view over Chelsea, Manhattans creative neighborhood. But don’t worry - Just because the park is so long, doesn’t mean you can’t take a break. With lounge chairs and benches all over the park and in the middle of the green, a relaxing pause to enjoy the scenery is no problem. You see - The High Line Park is an oasis in the middle of the rushing city and a true treasure definitely worth seeing. And we will bring you right there. Explore one of the trendiest areas of the city and join us on our unique walking tour. Let our professional English speaking tour guides teach you unknown and fascinating facts about the history and architecture of this park.
The High Line walking tour embarks from our VOLATOUR headquarters in Midtown Manhattan with a quick transfer to the High Line Northside entrance where we will start our walking tour through the elevated railroad track. As we are strolling along the green towards the South, you will not only see all the obvious, but also hidden details of the park. You will be surprised how someone can turn an old railway from the 1930s in such a modern meeting point for relaxation, arts and sports! Reaching the end of the High Line doesn’t mean we are at the end of our tour! After leaving the park, we briefly introduce you to the heart of the Meatpacking District. The name of this area still remains from the beginning of the 20th century, when the district was the center of Manhattan's meat markets. Today this neighborhood expresses itself in art and a modern lifestyle. The perfect place to finish our walking tour with a nice Italian espresso!
