Capitalism at its finest, explained well
The tour was extremely informative due to our wonderful tour guide, Ellen. Not only did she take us to each spot and give us the standard information, but her clear passion and knowledge of history made it feel as if we had behind-the-scenes knowledge of everything Hudson Yards. The stories were fascinating, and her background in theater helped carried her voice and make the stories even more exciting. Highly recommend for an educational experience with a bit of relaxing exercise (walking)!

The Shops mall features over 1 mile (1.5 kilometers) of retail heaven, while you can also walk the High Line public park.
