    Stop At: Manhattan Walking Tour, New York City, NY 10028

    Make your way to the High Line to begin this exciting 3.5-hour guided walking tour of the elevated park and the famous Greenwich Village. Expect to be wowed by the High Line. Once an elevated railway line for cargo that went all the way down the west side of Manhattan, it fell into disuse and was eventually abandoned in the 1970s. It sat there unused and unloved for decades until a group of locals, with a few celebrities tossed in for good measure, began a movement to turn it into a park.

    As you’ll see during your walk, they succeeded. The first of three phases was completed in 2009. In September 2014, the third and final phase opened, completing a park that is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long and is enjoyed equally by tourists and locals.

    Learn about all the public art in the park, as well as the new buildings by famous architects that can be seen from the High Line. Once you’ve reached the end, at the Meatpacking District, descend the stairs and meet Greenwich Village, one of New York’s most historic and eye-pleasing neighborhoods. When New York City developed the grid street plan for Manhattan in the early 19th century, Greenwich Village already existed, which is why the neighborhood is a charming tangle of curving, confusing streets.

    Explore the Village in a delicious way, through its food. Eat a slice of real Big Apple pizza and get clued in on where to find some of the best Italian specialties and chocolate confections in the city — you’ll make up to six stops and sample enough food to make a full lunch of it. But a neighborhood is more than just its food. Find out from the guide what famous people have lived in the neighborhood, and what famous people still do. Learn about the best underground jazz clubs and cool independent bookstores. The tour concludes in Greenwich Village, leaving you free to continue to explore this vibrant neighborhood.

    So where do we start downtown? New York was the first capital of the United States? You might think that’s as good a place as any, but not so. The real place to start our New York walking tour is with the Dutch West India Company.

    Yes, that’s correct. We (New Yorkers) were Dutch and Wall Street was a real wall. If you already knew that, you’ll still want to take our tour to find out how much of downtown New York is landfill and how much is really original New York. On our Historic Downtown tour of New York City you’ll get to experience how the neighborhood has grown since 9/11, the Stone Street Historic District (the oldest neighborhood in Manhattan) and Trinity Church, to name just a few landmarks. There’s so much New York history in this walking tour that every step opens up a new page in the history book. So come join us in Historic Downtown NYC and see for yourself!

    Four of us took the Greenwich Village foodie tour. First off, this is SO much more than a 'food' tour. Kevin was an excellent guide: born and raised in NY (Bronx), ex-cop, ex-high school history teacher, among many other things. Knows the city and it's history (even the esoteric
