A unique scavenger hunt for adults in the Meatpacking District! Sunset is the most dramatic time to enjoy the views atop New York's newest, utterly unique park, the High Line, built atop an old elevated railway. This becomes the spine of your quest to explore the Meatpacking District, the trendy "new" neighborhood that has sprung from an area of warehouses and historic buildings. You'll experience assorted chic sights, rough-and-tumble textures, savory tastes and enticing aromas. Highlights include the gourmet extravaganza that is Chelsea Market, glitzy new restaurants, boutiques, a hotel that took in survivors from the Titanic, movie locations, the blocks where Herman Melville once worked and Alexander Hamilton died, and John Lennon and Yoko Ono's home before they moved to the Dakota.

Advance purchase is required.

Additional Info: New York City's public park, the High Line, was built 30 feet off the ground on a stretch of abandoned freight railway line on the lower west side of Manhattan. These railway tracks, which were built in the 1930s to remove dangerous freight traffic from the streets, are now home to a winding greenway promenade that overlooks the Hudson River.
