Kips Bay/Murray Hill

With Zack Rhodes

[In-person tour] The East Side Manhattan neighborhoods of Murray Hill and Kips Bay have played a unique role in the history of New York. With a collection of unique architectural wonders such as the brutalist Kips Bay Towers or the Renaissance style Morgan Library, both neighborhoods have their gems. On this in-person walking tour with Zack Rhodes, we will discover the last unpaved street in Manhattan, the home of the most ardent students of philately, and one of the smallest historic districts in the entire city. Last but not least, we will find out why some New Yorkers affectionately call one of the neighborhoods “Curry Hill”, and why the other has always been a hotbed for medical progress.

MAS in-person tours last approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours and are held outdoors, therefore no masks are required. If you prefer to wear a mask, though, we want you to feel comfortable doing so. Meeting location is provided with registration. With rare exceptions, MAS in-person tours take place rain or shine.

For all tours, there are no refunds, cancellations, or exchanges unless we cancel a tour. Online registration closes one hour prior to the tour start time.

Registration is now closed.
