Description

Set on an old freight line, the High Line is a much-appreciated addition to New York. Created to beautify the line after disuse had led to decay, and now a symbol of sustainable hope for the area, it stretches above the bustle of Chelsea to offer a place of retreat for New Yorkers looking to relax.

* Begin at the infamous **Chelsea Hotel**, home to many different personalities of the past: Jimi Hendricks, Bob Dylan, Dylan Thomas, Sid Vicious and Nancy Sturgeon, Abbey Hoffman, just to name a few 
* Enjoy views of New York and **the Hudson River** 
* Walk amongst skyscrapers above the ground 
* See urban rejuvenation in action, including **the new Hudson Yards development** 
* Explore **Chelsea Market** and **Meatpacking Districts**

This neighbourhood is booming! Chelsea with its famous hotel, its artists, writers and musicians that called it home and often considered tangential to the “norm.” Stroll along the tree-lined sidewalks with stops at the first Gay Men’s Health Crisis Center and the majestic General Theological Society. Learn of the urban cowboys who corralled the herds of cattle through cow tunnels and eventually led them to the slaughterhouses. View the former warehouses that have been replaced with upscale shops and trendy restaurants. Take a walk along the HighLine and see how it changed into an elevated urban park. Last stop on the adventure is the former NABISCO warehouse, now the Chelsea Market, for an experience worth remembering.
