Full description

Explore two of the most unique neighborhoods on the west side of New York City, Chelsea and Hudson Yards, on this comprehensive walking tour.

Discover what was once a railway connecting upper and lower Manhattan. See how the High Line has been fully converted into a beautiful walkway slightly elevated above the street. 

Featuring views of New York's most iconic landmarks, greenery, and history, the High Line is the perfect way to get to Hudson Yards. While walking, hear stories of the past from a local guide and the history of the area.

Next, arrive back at Hudson Yards, a multifaceted campus serving up marvelous architecture, shops, dining, and The Edge observation deck. Your guide will take you to the heart of the neighborhood where you will get up close and personal with The Vessel, a 150-foot art installation.

Enjoy seeing the neighborhood and the city from new heights and a different vantage point with an optional ticket to The Edge.

Tour was ok. Learned a few things. Guide was good. Edge was very disappointing due to the inconsiderate and rude people literally laying on each other and posing 10+ poses per person. Tripping over people because they would literally get under you to “pose”.

Wonderful place to see; first time for us. Sara, our guide, was friendly, informative, and professional throughout the tour. She was also sensitive to varying rest periods where we could sit down while she continued informing us. She also had a good sense of humor and willingly answered questions.
