It’s a Mad Mad Mad Madison Square Park

Janes Walk

Led By Steve Madeja

What mysteries lurk in Madison Square Park? Starting across the street from the famous Flatiron Building, we’ll work our way around park’s perimeter to uncover the secrets behind each statue and skyscraper. From presidents and politicians to madams and madmen, from rocking chair riots to the “Murder of the Century,” be prepared to see this plot of greenery in a whole new light. With less than half a mile over flat terrain, this is a great tour for seniors, guests with disabilities, or people with pets.

This tour takes place entirely outside and covers less than half a mile over flat, paved terrain. Transportation to and from the tour is available via the R, W, and 6 trains or the M23 bus.
