    High Line Park Walking Tour

    High Line Park was once the High Line, an elevated freight railroad track that connected trains directly to factories and warehouses. In 1847, street-level railroads allowed freight trains to utilize Manhattan's West Side as their main thoroughfare. New York's "West Side Cowboys" assisted in managing the traffic, however because so many accidents occurred, the city and state of New York and the New York Central Railroad constructed the High Line as part of the Manhattan West Side Improvement Project. After the High Line was no longer used, it was commissioned into High Line Park. This two-hour walking tour of High Line Park takes you through the trendy Meatpacking District and into the Collier Publishing building, then along the 1.45 mile (2.33-kilometer) length of the park, which was once this elevated rail track. Your professional, knowledgeable guide will take you from the beginning of the Manhattan's West Side history through to the inception of the High Line, while identifying the unique plant life now inhabiting the former railroad tracks. This region has been developed with public art, and the native greenery has been incorporated with the long forgotten tracks to create a spectacular, dynamic park. You will see magnificent views of the New York City skyline as well as the Hudson River. You will also have the opportunity to visit the White Star Pier, where the survivors of Titanic disembarked, as well as the old Nabisco factory, where the Oreo Cookie was invented.

    Jackson Heights Walking Tour

    Whether you're new to the residential neighborhood of Jackson Heights, or just have no idea what you're looking at, this walking tour is a sure way to get your foot in the door! Over the course of 3 hours, you'll be treated to a rare guided look into one of Queen's most exciting and architecturally-rich neighborhoods, originally developed in the early 20th-century as a lush garden refuge. It all starts with a look at Edward MacDougall, founder of the Queensboro Corporation real estate company, and visionary behind Jackson Heights. You'll witness firsthand how his design principles led to a spacious neighborhood filled with light and greenery, while exploring some of its luxury apartment buildings. Your guide will offer in-depth commentary on the prevalent architectural trends seen in the neighborhood, including pre and post-war movements, social aspects, and preservation concerns. You'll even get an inside look at a private garden typically closed off to outsiders! Given that Queens is a diverse melting pot of nationalities, you'll also spend time discussing the rich tapestry of cultures that make Jackson Heights such an eclectic hotspot, with particular emphasis on the influx of South American and South Asian immigrants over the past twenty years. Adding to this experience, you'll make two or three stops to sample ethnic foods and beverages, and even a meal if you choose! After getting a taste of the culinary offerings Jackson Heights has to offer, you'll get back to building your architectural knowledge with a look at some of the neighborhood's famed garden apartments, including the Chateau, the Towers, and Dunolly Gardens. You'll also have a look at the storied Eagle Theater, now a Bollywood film house! We dare you not to break out in song and dance!
