Chelsea features a dynamic and rich history as it moved from rural farmland in the 1700s to the industrial hub of Manhattan in the early 1900s. Our walk will include the High Line (conditions permitting). Stops could include: The Chelsea Hotel, “Death Alley”, General Theological Seminary, sites associated with Dylan Thomas, Clement Clark Moore, Janis Joplin, John Sloan, and the birthplace of the Oreo cookie.
