Chelsea Market, High Line, and Galleries Sightseeing Program
This Chelsea tour begins with an exploration of the Chelsea Market – learning about its history as the Nabisco factory (the birthplace of the Oreo in 1912!) and its creative conversion into a destination for food lovers.
A stroll on the High Line follows. The transformation of this abandoned elevated railway into a public park is discussed, along with spectacular views of the surrounding architecture and unique works of art created specifically for the structure. The tour finishes with visits to selected art galleries featuring the work of cutting-edge and established artists.
Chelsea boasts the greatest concentration of galleries anywhere. Situated in formerly industrial spaces, they feature the work of cutting-edge and established artists. Enjoy a lecture about the exhibitions as well as insight into the art business and collecting.
