Highlights of the NYC High Line: A Virtual Tour With Mario Medici (Wed. 22 Sep, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

The High Line is only 1.45 miles long but it’s packed with history old and new. Take a walk on The High Line with Mario Medici, amateur photographer and historian, and discover how the High Line was transformed from a historic elevated freight rail to one of New York City’s most popular parks. Check out the new architecture, gigantic skyscrapers built over train tracks, century-old ice buildings, shopping centers, new sculpture art, and, yes, even where the Oreo cookie was discovered! Presentation includes visits to the recently opened “Little Island @ Pier 55” and a look down from “The Edge” 1171’ above Manhattan. Whether you’re planning a visit to The High Line or just curious to see what The High Line has to offer this presentation is not to be missed.

Mario Medici, a retired Information Technology executive who has traveled the world, is New York City born and raised. He completed his undergraduate degree at Bernard Baruch College (CUNY) and his graduate degree at Long Island University. He is a licensed New York City tour guide (License #2032026-DCA), a passionate history enthusiast, and nurtures his curiosity about all things. In his presentations, he takes on New York City’s interesting history as well as other subject matter. Through a combination of diligent research, computer skills and love for amateur photography, Mario presents the story combining video and music, as well as elements of art, architecture and notable individuals, making each lecture interesting and fast-moving.
