4)The High Line and It’s Surrounding “Hoods” -Wednesdays

    Fee: $25 per Adult and Children under 12 are FREE.   If you don’t like art or taking in memorable visuals,” FORGETTAH ABOUT IT” ( some other of my tours may better match  your likes but really , who doesn’t like art?)... Besides The High Line art, this tour covers architecture and history of the neighboring “hoods” (New York Cindy’s  contraction for “neighborhoods”). So now that you’re starting  to read like a New Yorchah”, picture yourself walking through parts of  the West Village with someone(i.e. NYCindy) showing you the building  where Edward Hopper and his wife lived for 40 years. Incidentally, since I was present at the plaque dedication (held just a few weeks ago by by the  Historic District Council), I can tell you all about that  rainy day...In case you’re wondering, the other “hood” we visit is West Chelsea. In fact, the reason I  conduct this tour on Thursday afternoons, is on Thursdays at 6PM the West Chelsea artists  have their “art openings’. Towards the end of the tour, I will share my art opening invitation  that is scheduled for this Thursday starting at 6PM. This  allows you time to explore FIT’s museum as well as other Chelsea galleries. I will also leave you with some information on historic sites in the area you can also explore while your in the “hood”...
