Meatpacking & High Line: The Happy Poppy Bagel Tour
Sun, October 8, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM CDT
Once an industrial and dilapidated neighborhood, the Meatpacking District is now a very happy place as one of the most upscale and fashionable areas in New York City. A fresh poppy bagel will no doubt bring a smile to your face as you begin this tour and wind your way through the unique shops and treats of Chelsea Market. Span the globe in this one-block wonder with a wide array of imported gourmet and specialty foods, local dairies, fine eateries, and tantalizing baked goods. After all, this is the landmark location where the Oreo cookie was born.
Next, get ready to move out and up to an idyllic, linear park in the urban sky. The High Line is New York’s only elevated park. Why is this perfect pathway with lush greenery located above street level? Because it was ingeniously built on a section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad that had been abandoned for years. This one-mile long, sightseeing adventure offers spectacular views of the Hudson River as well as the architecture and street life below. From the Meatpacking District through Chelsea, explore fashionable shops, restaurants, and hotels in addition to the sights, sounds, and tastes of this unique area!
