Depart your hotel and begin your tour with an exploration of Chelsea Market. Your private guide will show you all the ins and outs of the market, including the history from when the building was the Nabisco factory. During your tour, you’ll also learn about its creative conversion in a destination for food lovers and the history of the building’s transformation.
Following your tour in Chelsea Market, you’ll head outside to stroll the High Line. While walking along the former abandoned elevated railway, you’ll learn about its transformation into a public park and view the surrounding architecture and unique works of art created specifically for the structure. The tour finishes with visits to selected art galleries featuring the work of cutting-edge and established artists.
After your morning in Chelsea, you’ll head to Greenwich Village, which is among Manhattan’s most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. During your excursion, you will be led through some of the neighborhood’s most enchanting sites, revealing extraordinary histories, architectural delights, and secrets unknown even to many New Yorkers. The tour will continue along genteel Commerce Street, with its restored Federal-style residence and historic Cherry Lane Theater. Next, you’ll continue down Bedford Street, which features a view of a former speakeasy which discreetly plied its boozy trade during the 1920s Prohibition era. Finally, you will finish up your day by checking out one of the narrowest pieces of real estate on the island of Manhattan on Grove Street.
