High Line Walking Tour
Taught by James Hoffman
James is just this guy, y'know? Humble, intelligent, charming. Eyes a color you don't know the name for. He'll take you for a bike ride with his company Albert and James in the morning, play a board game with you with his board game group Victory Pints in the evening and then prattle on about D&D and cocktails at night. Only in the morning will you realize that it was all a ploy and your jewels are no longer in the safe. Instead there's a note so beautifully written that the police officer who collects 'it' as evidence breaks downs in tears. You sob with him as the neighborhood wakes up around you.
Of all the public spaces in the New York, probably the least likeliest to ever have been created is The High Line. Few people probably ever imagined that the abandoned elevated train tracks that ran through West Chelsea would one day be one of the most popular attractions in New York City.
Join us for a walk down the High Line as we talk about the history of the park itself and the surrounding area. We'll get beautiful views of the Hudson River, see a lot of cool architecture, and learn about the history of the park and surrounding area.
Come learn about the "West Side Cowboys" of Death Avenue, the birth place of one of America's favorite cookies, sites associated with the Titanic and a lot, lot more!
We'll meet on 34th Street between 11th Ave and 12th Ave, and exact meeting instructions will be sent the day before the walk.
