Know More about this 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.
