Meet your guide at the High Line, an elevated public park built on an abandoned railway above the streets of Chelsea. As you walk south, your guide points out buildings by renowned architects and public art installations, and lets you in on neighborhood secrets most visitors never hear. Keep an eye out for the new Whitney Museum.
At the end of the park, descend into Greenwich Village, one of New York’s oldest neighborhoods. As you walk through the charming streets, you fill up on food from classic New York food—pizza, bagels, donuts, and more—from six authentic eateries.
Rather than hunting for hidden gems on your own, the guide recommends jazz clubs, independent bookstores, and coffee shops loved by locals. The tour ends a block away from Washington Square Park, the perfect place to rest your legs.
