Wat je gaat doen

This is a unique experience, as we won't just look at famous buildings; we'll go inside some. Along the way, you'll discover reasons for the hodgepodge of architectural styles seen in New York City. And you'll get a feel for the changing pulse along 42nd St, from tourist attraction to workday world of real New Yorkers.

We'll meet at a Broadway theater. Learn how this area became the heart of live entertainment and review the social ups and downs and ups again of Times Square. Head east and suddenly come upon a "pocket park" or two, then large Bryant Park, an oasis in the middle of bustling Midtown. Learn the history of the park and the adjacent library, then go inside to visit the library's famous "residents" and examine the decor that made this a palace of knowledge. After exiting the library, go a block off 42nd St to discover an art/philosophy installation most New Yorkers don't know about. Explore Grand Central Terminal inside and out. Unless it's occupied, visit a repurposed classical bank. End at the Chrysler Building, where we'll go inside to admire this Art Deco masterpiece.
Other things to note
Some of this experience is indoors, but we will be walking outdoors much of the time. Come prepared!

I've been a New York City licensed tour guide since 2015. I'm not a native New Yorker; I've lived here only about 35 years! When I used to visit NYC before moving here and more so once this great city became home, I've always enjoyed 42nd Street. At first I was drawn to the Theater District. Then I fell in love with some iconic buildings further east on 42nd, and I developed an appreciation for the varied architecture. The icing on the cake was discovering large and small parks that bring a sense of calm to this bustling neighborhood. Let me show you 42nd St as you've never seen it before!

Waar je naartoe gaat

Tourists think of the Theater District and Times Square when they hear "42nd Street," so that's where we'll begin. Then we'll see green places New Yorkers love: the little indoor and outdoor parks scattered throughout the city and Bryant Park. We'll go inside several iconic buildings, including the public library, Grand Central, and the Chrysler Building. Discover history and art hidden in plain sight along the route. Great for any weather!

42ndSt. Walk: A Lustrous Laurie Lewis Extraordinary Experience! Laurie chose marvelous places and shared many dynamic historical stories and fun local secrets that stopped time for me. I think my new definition of the New York minute is spending 2 hours walking with Laurie. The only disappointment came when it was over! Loved every minute!
