We’ll continue along to Grand Central Station, a magnificent Beaux-Arts structure and temple to transportation, where we’ll gaze up at the star-flecked sky of the Main Concourse and discuss the Terminal’s origins during the heyday of long-distance passenger rail service. Just two blocks away, we’ll visit New York Public Library, a building that offers sumptuous exterior decoration and interiors for a very different purpose. We’ll conclude our walk in Bryant Park, one of the signature examples of New York City’s revival in the 1990's, or perhaps head down to the New York Times Building.
Generally speaking, the walk begins near Tudor City on 2nd Avenue. Your confirmation email will have the exact meeting point details along with a map. The walk typically ends near Bryant Park or Time Square.
Do we go inside the venues or just see them from the outside?
You will go inside the lobbies of several of the skyscrapers we discuss on the walk. Some of these include the Chrysler Building, Daily News Building, and Grand Central Terminal.
