The High Line is gorgeous. Great art and views. Our guide Jillian was super fun, informative and delightful, def request. The shops and food in Chelsea Market didn’t disappoint. Cute area of NY a must see and do.
The tour was scheduled early, 9am, which was perfect. Since it was late June, it the temperature was comfortable for walking. Also, we almost had the park to ourselves. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining. She also provided ideas for things to do during the rest of our stay in NYC.
Great morning well worth visiting the High Line we will definitely go there again on a visit to NY. Our guide Mary Hannah Lynn was fantastic she gave us so much information and also took us to the Chelsea market for a food tasting. We would highly recommend a visit to the High Line either in the winter or summer.
