Start your day by visiting the world-famous Chelsea Market, an abandoned factory that has been transformed into the city’s greatest food court. Then ascend to the High Line, a park constructed atop an elevated railway that stretches nearly a mile along the West Side. View one-of-a-kind art pieces, urban meadows, and breathtaking panoramas that weave between and among structures. Bring your camera with you!
We’ll next drive south, where your guide will show you around the Meatpacking District. The 1980s counterculture recaptured this industrial region, which was eventually recovered by New York’s wealthy elite. Admire some of Manhattan’s most iconic buildings, such as Frank Gehry’s glittering glass curtain design for the IAC Building and the Empire State Building, a classic art deco skyscraper.
You’ll hear stories of mansions destroyed in New York’s real estate boom, architecture saved almost by accident and a city that’s constantly changing itself as you walk. Observe the ever-evolving identity of New York City in this neighborhood in flux.
