Behind all the neon and glitz, 42nd Street reveals a rich architectural history. A century ago, early skyscrapers competed with grand Beaux Arts monuments in the drive to build a new commercial neighborhood north of what most people considered “the city.” This tour explores both the famous as well as the less-celebrated highlights of the most famous New York City street.
This tour lasts approximately two hours and costs a flat fee of $100 for groups of 1-4 people. For parties larger than 4 people, the cost is $25 per person. Please inquire about discounts for student groups or parties larger than 10 people.
