The High Line is a unique urban redevelopment of an unused elevated railroad line from the 1930s. It is a dynamic expression of one of the best public-private utilizations of unused industrial space and its interaction with the surrounding urban environment. Join me as we follow the high Line as it meanders through 3 distinct neighborhoods.
The High Line currently is open from Gansevoort Street to 30th Street on the west side of Manhattan.
On the 14th we will meet in the lobby of the Hotel at 7:00AM and walk approximately 10 minutes to the 30th Street entrance. We will return via taxi or public transportation* to the Hotel.
On the 15th we will do the reverse trip and start at Gansevoort Street and walk towards 30th Street.
*Please note: Public transportation (busses and subways) requires a Metrocard. This is a prepaid card that is available at most subway stations –please get yours in advance.
