HIGH LINE DISTRICT HISTORICAL WALKING TOURS

Trains on the High Line once ran through the Bell Telephone Labs (now the Westbeth Building), one of the historical buildings featured on the walking tours.

Join architectural historian Matt Postal on one of three walking tours exploring the four historic districts that surround the High Line. Matt will highlight important buildings located near the Line, including the former Nabisco Factory (now Chelsea Market), the Starrett-Lehigh Building, and the Empire Diner.

**Please note, this is a street-level walking tour.**

All tours are identical, so please sign up for only one.

Tuesday, September 9

Wednesday, September 24

Thursday, October 2


Each tour begins at 6:00PM. RSVP for meeting location. $10 members, $15 non-members.

RSVP

Support for this program has been provided by the Trust for Architectural Easements.
