Explore the Ruins of a Forgotten City in the Middle of Manhattan

Duration: From 2 hours to 3 hours



Taxes and fees will be calculated at checkout


This 2-3 hour guided walking tour around Madison Square Park seeks out what's left to be found of the Gilded Age city. On this tour we read the architecture and decode the street walls in a neighborhood that was once the New York's city center at the height of the Industrial Age.  Where the city came from (Soho), and where it moved to (Times Square, Museum Mile, and the shops of Fifth Avenue) is integral to understanding how New York, and Madison Square, developed. You’ll learn answers to questions you didn’t know you had about New York City, and leave with the deeply satisfying sense of understanding a city that author James Baldwin called 'spitefully incoherent'.
