Kips Bay/Murray Hill

With Zack Rhodes

Hugging the coast of the East River, the neighborhoods of Murray Hill and Kips Bay have played a unique role in the history of New York. With its collection of unique architectural wonders such as the brutalist Kips Bay Towers or the renaissance style Morgan Library, both neighborhoods stand out in the Manhattan skyline. In this tour with Zack Rhodes, we will discover the last unpaved street in Manhattan, 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.

Virtual tours are in Eastern Time and last 60 to 90 minutes. They are not recorded to be viewed later.

Registration is now closed.
