Description:

On this 3-hour walking tour, see Midtown's most iconic monuments, stunning achievements of 20th-century American architecture. As you walk, your guide takes care to illuminate the history of the area's communities and brings you inside to explore several striking interiors.

Start your stroll at Manhattan's first residential skyscraper, Tudor City. Known for its Neo-Gothic architecture, parks, and gardens, it has played a significant role in movies like Godfather II, Spiderman, Taxi Driver, and Scarface. Shortly after, take in the United Nations Headquarters, a triumph of International Style-architecture, the result of collaboration after World War II.

Continue on your way to take in the vast atrium and lush interior garden of the Ford Foundation Building; see how its modern design encourages a communal environment. Then visit 3 Art Deco masterpieces: First, enter the Daily News Building, the office of the fictional daily newspaper Daily Planet, where Superman worked as Clark Kent. Second, explore the lobbies and ornate French metalwork of the Chanin Building. Last but not least, admire the iconic brick of the soaring Chrysler Building.

On the last leg of your tour, find the Beaux-Arts design of the Grand Central Terminal—including its wall-to-wall marble interior—and the Carrère and Hastings' New York Public Library. Finish up in the heart of Times Square, where you soak up the exciting energy of Manhattan's Theater District.
