Overview of your New york cit... tour:

A unique and beautiful place in New York. The High Line was once a freight Rail Line, now it has been reclaimed and is now a 1. 5m/2. 4km Public Park, with great views - Native plants and wildflowers in the heart of the former manufacturing and wharf district. - Beautiful and unique architecture, as this park has spurred an incredible amount of new buildings. - So many of the old warehouse structures remain, most are repurposed. We will recall how a derelict freight line, has become an iconic NYC destination. I can share personal recollections of rail transport in New York and the region. That is passenger service, freight lines, trolleys and cable cars. Its time to remind everyone, Manhattan and 4 of NYC's 5 boros are on islands and they have a lot of people and materials, that need to move in and out Lets go check it all out, in a new three (3) hour walk.

Your New york cit... tour itinerary

Hudson Yards at the start and historical Chelsea Market at the end, have many culinary delights. Some old, some very new, but all interesting. On this walking tour, we will explore: - The remnants of the former freight line, now with native plants and wildflowers. - I will also tell the story of the West Side Cowboy and "Death Avenue". - Now a public park that was saved from demolition. Today we see new housing and wonderful architecture. Some of these new buildings are astounding. - It is only part of the regions railroading story. - We will get to all of that and the history that remains. Come and walk with me thru the old and the new. A view of the Statue of Liberty and the pier where the Titanic was to dock, are included.
