This tour will start in front of the Empire State Building, whose main lobby we will visit, as we begin to explore the history of midtown and its many Art Deco architectural masterpieces.
From there, we will travel up historic 5th Avenue. We will then visit Bryant Park, one of midtown's lesser-known treasures, where we will see several amazing NYC buildings, including one of the most unique Art Deco buildings in the city. Then, we will explore the adjoining main branch of the New York Public Library, a 646,680 square feet (60,079m2) icon. See the sweeping interior landmark Rose Main Reading Room and the library's famous lion sculptures!
From there, we will journey down 42nd St to see several lesser-known, but key, art deco skyscrapers, before visiting the Chrysler Building's stunning lobby. You will be blown away! We end with a visit to Grand Central Terminal, one of NYC's most beautiful spaces. Your guide will tell you tales of the station's many hidden secrets and its storied history. It is here that our tour ends and your own journey in midtown may continue!
This is a expansive tour, and good for all ages.
