Know More about this tour

Select from a morning or afternoon departure time. Then, in a small, private group (six people maximum) exploration of Midtown Manhattan, delve into the evolution of the city’s varied architecture, from the late-19th century through today.

Starting in Tudor City at 2nd Avenue, proceed down 42nd Street to Times Square in the company of an architectural expert and long-term New York resident. Learn about the varied roles the street has played in the last two centuries — from a gated community and commuter hub, to the red-light and theater districts. Learn the visual language of such architectural movements as Beaux Arts, Art Deco, and the International Style as while studying the exteriors and interiors of iconic structures like the Chrysler Building, the Daily News Building, the Ford Foundation, Grand Central Terminal, and the New York Public Library.

Along the way, discuss the city’s rapid expansion northward during the first half of the 20th century, the key role Midtown played in it, and how Manhattan’s built environment continues to evolve today.

Because the group is small, there is plenty of time for questions and dialogue throughout the tour.
