Our guides bring history to life as they share fun facts and historical information about famous buildings such as the Renaissance Revival Flatiron building, to lesser-known wonders like the Metropolitan Life Insurance Tower, both on Madison Square Park. We’ll also head crosstown to the High Line – a linear park built atop an abandoned industrial railroad freight line, aka the Coolest Newest Old Thing in NYC – to discuss architectural preservation and historical adaption.
