Grab Your Group and TOUR The High Line

Like most New Yorkers I have walked The Highline numerous times.  While I have “done” The Highline, what I “did” was in a completely uninformed and clueless manner, scurrying by various historic landmarks and utterly missing the point of this resurrected gift to NYC.

Be More Chill is HOT!
