The High Line is an open air promenade in Manhattan riddled with secrets, little known facts, and beautiful sites. Tomorrow at noon, join our virtual talk on the Secrets of the High Line. Did you know cowboys once roamed the wild west (side of Manhattan)? Or that Manhattan was the third largest producer of packaged meats in the entire country — well ahead of all those wide open spaces in the middle. Did you know it overlooks Manhattan’s last remaining hotel that serves a by-the-hour clientele, where New York Times reporters once rented out an entire floor, anxiously anticipating the arrival of survivors from the Titanic, the ship that couldn’t sink?
In this virtual talk led by Untapped New York tour guide Jillian Courtney, we “walk” the length of the High Line from the Whitney Museum at Gansevoort and Washington St, past sites like Chelsea Market, the Empire State building, and a few you may not even have realized were there. Because we are doing this virtually we are able to hop from season to season in our views, seeing the High Line at all times of year, and viewing additional supplementary materials along the way. Visit one of New York City’s greatest treasures, learn all its most salacious stories, all from the comfort and safety of home.
