Begin your morning with a stop in the world-famous Chelsea Market, an abandoned factory converted into the city’s best food court. Then climb up to the gray steel truss of the High Line, a park built atop an elevated railway, running for over a mile up the West Side. View unique art installations, urban meadows, and incredible vistas weaving between and through buildings. Bring your camera!
Next, we’ll head south as your guide introduces you to the Meatpacking District. This industrial area was reclaimed first by the counterculture of the 1980s, then later by New York’s wealthy elite. Marvel at some of Manhattan’s most iconic architecture, like Frank Gehry’s glittering glass curtain design for the IAC Building and the famous art deco skyscraper, the Empire State Building.
As you walk, you’ll hear about the homes lost in New York’s real estate boom, the architecture preserved almost by accident, and a city that’s constantly reinventing itself. Explore this neighborhood in flux, and witness firsthand the ever changing identity of NYC.
