Rick Bedrosian’s Saturday, September 22nd NYC Food Tour: Chelsea and the High Line

Posted by Rick Bedrosian

Forget about Midtown and spend all day on the West Side with eminent musician, food enthusiast, traveler and lover of all things New York, Rick Bedrosian, as he takes you through Chelsea, Union Square and the High Line, one of New York City’s most popular attractions. There will be plenty to eat in the neighborhood too and food at 5 or more places is included!. Rick has eaten his way through Chelsea dozens of times, constantly seeking out the finest fare the West Side of Manhattan has to offer.

The High Line is the backyard that most New Yorkers don’t have and a splendid alternative to Central Park. It’s filled with plants, flowers, objects d’art, benches, panoramic views of the city, a performance space, a kid’s playground and picnic areas. There’s a whole lot to do and see in the West Village/Chelsea area. You’ll want to explore this section of New York with Rick because he’s been there so many times.

Once an elevated railroad track carrying New York Central freight trains in and out of the Meatpacking District, the High Line is now a 1.45 mile park built on a spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the Lower West Side. The former rail line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial park. A similar project in Paris, the 3-mile Promenade Plantee, completed in 1993, was the inspiration for the High Line.

Be prepared to taste some remarkable food and see some outstanding sights between bites. Price includes food, transportation and guide (Rick) throughout the tour. The tour will take place rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes and dress accordingly (light layers are always best). If the weather forecast calls for rain, be sure to bring an umbrella.
