A not-for-profit organization advocating a user-friendly city brings its mission to the streets with expertly guided tours of historic places. – Overview
The Society, founded more than 100 years ago, is committed to preserving Gotham's finest buildings, landmarks and public spaces. Pioneering advocacy efforts have yielded amazing results: Grand Central Terminal, Radio City and Greenwich Village all survive thanks in part to the Society. As part of its mission of championing the city's best urban designs and plans, the group cultivates grassroots support through comprehensive walking and bus tours--each guided by uniquely qualified individuals.
The tours are as varied as the city itself, exploring famous institutions like Times Square and Central Park or investigating more obscure locales like Millionaire's Mile and Lower Broadway. Thoughtfully packaged yet cleverly themed, these tours augment the deep, historical insights of the genial guides with a passion about the subject that is fairly contagious.
