    High Line and Meat Market Tour (Gansevoort)

    Abandoned hazardous factories. Barren buildings. Rusted roots. Years ago, you didn’t venture near the Meat Packing district. Today, it’s become an upscale, fashionable area littered with trendy youths and wealthy, celebrity couples. In this High Line and Meat Market Tour, you’ll explore the used-to-be barren territory that has been transformed into expensive boutiques, restaurants, and hotels. After traversing the streets, you’ll venture up to the High Line, a beautiful park where an elevated railway once rested (and relics of it remain). On this mile long, sight-seeing adventure you will see spectacular views of the Hudson River as well as the architecture and street life below, and get a chance to meander by the fashionable shops, restaurants, and hotels below. But this tour is not just about the sights, sounds, and tastes, you'll love all the stories surrounding the conversion of an old Oreo factory into the high-end Chelsea Market, and what went into the transformation of the area as a whole! Some history, a little exploring, a stroll through a scenic park, and a poppy seed bagel all in one day? Sounds just about perfect!
