Free Tour of the Month

Buildings around Penn Station

The Municipal Art Society of New York and the 34th Street Partnership are proud to present Tour 34: Empire to Penn, a walking tour of the revitalized West Midtown neighborhood. From railroads to retail, hotels to newspapers, and sidewalks to skyscrapers, our expertly-trained docents will lead you on an exploration of the history and unfolding future of this bustling hub of transportation and commerce. Tour-goers will learn firsthand the latest plans to reimagine this historic neighborhood with ideas for transforming Penn Station to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding West Side.

During the month of June we are pleased to offer Tour34 for free. No reservations are required, simply meet your tour leader at this location:

The kiosk is usually on the sidewalk in front of the American Eagle store at 40 West 34th Street, or nearby. (Kiosk may not be open during heavy rain.)
