Walking Tour: Down the High Line, Former Path to Hell!

What a meat market! Join ProwlerNYC for a colorful Prowl through Manhattan’s gorgeous linear park, where drug addicts, prostitutes, and gay/transgender life flourished in the years before its magical renaissance in the early 2000s. We’ll have a colorful discussion about the industrial, architectural and social history of this pulsing artery traversing sought-after neighborhoods that restored or replaced former rail yards, food markets, slaughterhouses, and dark recesses that accommodated the seamier side of life. Join our parade of peeping Toms as we peer through glass facades at area occupants who willingly reveal their lives to this public promenade. We will learn how the High Line’s history still shapes its future, while becoming familiar with Hudson Yards, Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, and prominent old and new buildings nearby.

Meet Atop the Highline at the seating area for the 26th St. Viewing Spur

513 west 26th Street, New York, NY 10017
