New York Walking Tours

New York Architectural Tours typically include the key contemporary buildings but classic 20h Century buildings can also be incorporated. The New York Architecture Tour can be an introduction to the main NYC buildings or arranged around your group’s interests.

We can provide information on areas in Manhattan and building types ahead of your walking tour. For example advice could be provided for a group interested in New York office buildings so that a tour programme could be firmed up ahead of their visit to Manhattan.
