What You’ll Do and See

Amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City’s Lower West Side, soars one of the world’s most marvelous urban achievements. Once an elevated rail line, it fell into a state of decay upon being decommissioned in 1980. After years of facing imminent demolition, a group of local residents came together and saved it from the wrecking ball. Today, this 1.45 mile long linear park is considered an icon of landscape architecture and design. On this tour, your expert guide will lead you among the lush greenery, public art installations and incredible NYC skyline views, all while sharing fascinating stories of its history and evolution. Let Manhattan Walking Tour show you why this metropolitan oasis is perennially ranked one of the top ten places in the world to visit.

The High Line is a great New York story of industry, history, and everyday New Yorkers working to make our city even better. On top of the amazing stories, the High Line is a work of art in itself, with views of the dynamic neighborhoods and cutting-edge architecture around it. Manhattan Walking Tour knows the best spots to relax, and hidden secrets of the High Line.

Paired with our Greenwich Village Food Tour(opens in a new tab), or a triple combo with Greenwich Village Food Tour and our Historic Downtown Walking Tour(opens in a new tab) you’ll have your finger on the pulse of New York City – not to mention some very satisfied taste buds.
