Event Details

Join historian Matthew Postal for a view into the High Line’s past.

This walking tour follows the High Line’s “ghost section”, the former southernmost section of the High Line which extended southward from Gansevoort Street to the far West Village, ending at the St. John's Park Freight Terminal.

 

After your walking tour, enjoy dinner or a snack on the High Line. On the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets you will find tacos, gelato, ice pops, and more seasonal treats from our food vendors, as well as Terroir at The Porch, a full-service, open-air café serving beer, wine, and small plates with sweeping views of the Hudson River.
