Go Fancy on Fifth This Weekend with MAS
October 29th, 2009, 7:15 pm
Join tour leader and architectural historian Tony Robins this Sunday, November 1, for a stroll along one of the fanciest boulevards in the city. Walking from Rockefeller Center to the Plaza Hotel along a stretch of Fifth Avenue that has evolved from a posh 19th-century residential area to a major 20th-century commercial center, we’ll consider clashing images of a glamorous district — the 19th-century residential model of mansions, clubs and churches, versus the 20th-century model of skyscrapers, hotels and department stores. Fancy on Fifth: From Rockefeller Center to the Plaza Hotel Sunday, November 1, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Meet at 457 Madison Ave. at 51st St., MAP. $15, $10 MAS members. Pay at tour. Details of other upcoming MAS tours and programs through the New Year can be found at MAS.org/calendar.
