Walking tour in the High Line Park and Chelsea Market on September 7th, 2012 (Friday)
The session is almost over!
We are going to have a walk tour in the High Line Park on September 7th, 2012 (Friday).
“The High Line was built in the 1930s, as part of a massive public-private infrastructure project called the West Side Improvement. It lifted freight traffic 30 feet in the air, removing dangerous trains from the streets of Manhattan's largest industrial district. No trains have run on the High Line since 1980. Friends of the High Line, a community-based non-profit group, formed in 1999 when the historic structure was under threat of demolition. Friends of the High Line works in partnership with the City of New York to preserve and maintain the structure as an elevated public park.”
After High Line Park or in case of bad weather conditions we are going to go to Chelsea Market:
"Chelsea Market is an enclosed urban food court, shopping mall, office building and television production facility located in the Chelsea neighborhood of the borough of Manhattan, in New York City."
