Tour: Feeding the Future

EnlargeFeeding the Furture

Originally built in 1934, the High Line played a critical role in carrying farm-fresh foods to the growing metropolis.

During this walking tour, Sonya Kharas, of the NYU Food Studies Program, will reveal how food is at the center of the High Line’s history, and lead the group in an engaging discussion of the High Line’s changing role in the City’s food system.

This High Line Program is open to visitors of all ages. Tickets are $15, or $10 for members of Friends of the High Line.

The meeting location will be provided in the confirmation email following your ticket purchase. PURCHASE TICKETS.

After your walking tour, enjoy dinner or a snack on the High Line. On the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets you will find tacos, gelato, ice pops, and more seasonal treats from our food vendors, as well as Terroir at The Porch, a full-service, open-air café serving beer, wine, and small plates with sweeping views of the Hudson River.
