Begin the tour with a stop at the world-famous Chelsea Market, a former factory that was converted into the city’s best food hall! Visit the impressive High Line, a park built along an abandoned railway aboveground. Observe the art murals scattered around the beautiful green space that weaves between and through buildings.
Continue south to the Meatpacking District, an industrial area once filled with rows of slaughterhouses that is now one of the chicest neighborhoods in the city. Marvel at some of Manhattan’s most iconic architecture, including Frank Gehry’s glittering glass curtain design of the IAC Building and the incredible Art Deco edifice of the Empire State Building.
Listen to the tragic stories of the “undesirables” who once called this neighborhood home, before their community disappeared with the boom of New York's real estate business. Explore the neighborhood as you learn how the architecture and overall vibe of the area were preserved almost by accident!
