AVAILABLE TOUR ITINERARIES
Gold Coast mansions and Lower East Side tenements, Colonial relics and International Style glass towers, Gothic cathedrals and Moorish synagogues — Victorian brownstones, Art Deco skyscrapers, Broadway theaters…. New Yorkers enjoy some of the country’s most extraordinary and varied architecture. Trouble is, as they charge down the sidewalks on their daily rounds, most New Yorkers rarely have time to look up. So recreational walking tours of the city’s buildings, history and neighborhoods have become one of New York’s beloved obsessions (and frankly, no matter how much we may gripe about the city, most of us just can’t get enough of it). Writer, lecturer and historian Tony Robins has been helping tilt heads skywards for the past quarter century. Wouldn’t you enjoy an excuse to exercise those neck muscles?
We offer tours of New York’s architecture and history two ways:
- Public tours offered through a variety of non-profits (Municipal Art Society, Art Deco Society of New York) – those are listed in the calendar of events, with a link to the non-profit in question for information and reservations.
- Private group walking tours, geared to groups of up to 30 – these are booked directly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All tours run two to three hours – please wear the proverbial comfortable shoes.
