Holiday Lights & Sights/Midtown Private Group History Tour For New Yorkers

Description:

Get in to the Holiday Spirit with a fun group from NYSN!

Our tours are designed for New Yorkers who are interested in finding out more about the city in which they live.  Be a tourist in your own town with a fun group of people from our group and other social networking groups from the NYC area!  If you are a native New Yorker or new to the city there is so much we take for granted or never notice as we navigate through midtown Manhattan.  It is even more beautiful with all the holiday decorations! There is so much history, hidden secrets and fun facts that await you when you join this tour as you explore and socialize with other fun people from NYSN and other groups!

We begin near 34th Street with amazing old photos of the original Penn Station that was even bigger and more beautiful than Grand Central.  We’ll wind our way through the streets with stops along the way where your tour guide will show you pictures from the late 18 and early 1900’s plus share the historical significance of each location.  The tour ends at Rockefeller Center and last about 90 minutes.

We will also stop along the way and see the windows at Macy's, Lord and Taylor and Sacks, the tree in Bryant Park, 6th Avenue Corporation Row, Radio City and the tree at Rockefeller Center.

You will be blown away by the hidden secrets, fun facts and old photos of what was then and what is now.
