Wat je gaat doen
Curious about NYC architecture and how the Big Apple is shaped? Looking for a fun, alternative daytime activity to do during your visit? Using the city as our canvas, you will learn about urban design through the lens of unique, and some lesser-known curated sites in town! Each stop will explore a theme of the way NYC was and continues to be shaped through the field of urban planning and (really cool) architecture. Find out why and how each neighborhood is zoned the way it is, and learn about the unique processes it takes to build in New York City. You'll learn about the history and details of spaces that are overlooked in everyday life, and how buildings and public spaces inform each other throughout the 20th century until today. This isn't your average sightseeing tour! You'll be receiving the "locals-only" treatment" that won't disappoint. Usually, we will start in Midtown and conclude in the West Village/Meatpacking District with a possible stop at the new Hudson Yards. Each stop will be around 15-20 min each for about 2.5 hours total that includes transport and walking.
Hello there! My name is David. I hold a degree in urban design and planning from Parsons School of Design here in NYC. I love all things NYC architecture facts & trivia, and I've most recently worked at an architecture and design magazine in Brooklyn. I have grown up in the NY area my whole life, and am passionate about showing guests my favorite buildings in the city and the lesser-known facts about them. I am also on a mission to find the best chocolate chip cookie in New York. I can't wait to meet you! Any questions, please feel free to ask!
