February 21st, 2017, marks International Tourist Guide Day – or really week, as events go on all week long. As part of the festivities, GANYC (the Guides Association of New York City), of which I am a member, is sponsoring a host of free tours all around the city, including this one.
So, on Thursday February 23rd: A one-hour walk to see three grand Art Deco skyscrapers on East 42nd Street. We visit the Daily News Bulding, the Chrysler Building, and the Chanin Building, three very different skyscrapers by three very different architects, within two blocks of each other. Together, they reshaped the east Midtown skyline. Meet in front of 220 East 42nd Street (former Daily News Building), south side of East 42nd between 2d and 3d avenues. Free, but reservations required – limited to 30 people. Reservations: TonyRobins@pipeline.com Once you’ve reserved, you’ll receive an email with the tour location.
