East Side Enclaves

With Matt Postal

[In-person tour] From Manhattan’s first historic district, Sniffen Court, to Beekman Place, this tour with architecture historian Matt Postal considers some of New York more unusual and desirable residential enclaves. Located in close proximity to midtown, we’ll view picturesque residences that challenged traditional lifestyles and the ever-present urban grid, including converted stables, a trend-setting high-rise apartment complex, and Paul Rudolph’s gravity-defying penthouse, a recently-designated landmark.

In-person tours are limited to 25 attendees and are held outdoors.  Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore recommend that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status.  Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation.  Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.

MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.
