This 3-hour guided tour will take you from New York City’s past, present and future. Visit historic, and gorgeous, Greenwich Village, the Meatpacking District, the High Line Park, and the growing Hudson Yards. Pass by countless architectural beauties and NYC landmarks.
We start at the iconic Washington Square Park, epicenter of this massive historic district. Then we begin our exploration of Greenwich Village, a neighborhood settled in the early 1800s, and once the outer suburbs of New York for the wealthy elite before eventually evolving into the heart of the progressive, bohemian west village. See the neighborhood’s key landmarks, famous and less so, as well as the clubs that launched the careers of Bob Dylan and countless others. But the real highlight of this tour for many are the quiet, winding streets of this gorgeous neighborhood.
Next, we enter the Meatpacking District, a former industrial hub that helped change and grow the city of New York. You’ll see the popular Chelsea Market, old cobblestone streets, and gorgeous old industrial buildings.
Finally, we journey across the 1.45-mile High Line, a former freight rail converted into a modern, 21st-century park in the sky. This park is a stunning marvel of urban revival and filled with lots of art. It is quickly becoming one of NYC’s most popular attractions.
The tour ends in Hudson Yards, a new neighborhood that is the most ambitious real estate development project in New York in over half a century.
