Explore the Lower West Side of Manhattan by foot on this four-hour, guided walking tour! After a quick subway ride from Midtown, your tour begins at Hudson Yards--the brand-new neighborhood sitting on the banks of the Hudson River, complete with six futuristic towers, a luxury shopping center, hotels, bars and restaurants. Climb The Vessel and enjoy stunning views of the city below.
The tour continues with a stroll along the High Line, a lush promenade created on the abandoned tracks of a former industrial railway. Next, you'll visit the very trendy Meatpacking District--once the slaughterhouse district of New York and currently a city hotspot for clubs and designer boutiques. This area is extremely charming with its cobblestone streets and post-industrial buildings.
Here you'll also find Chelsea Market, where you can enjoy some free time to wander the grounds and even have a quick bite. Your guide will share some great recommendations! The tour ends with a visit of the Whitney Museum, home to both modern and contemporary American art. Wander the museum at your own leisure and, after your visit, go upstairs to the rooftop terrace and enjoy stunning views of the city below.
