Midtown Walking Tour
Residents of small (up to 5 million people:) and cozy cities often ask to do a “walking tour of New York City center” for them…
Although our city is relatively cozy (no), it cannot be described as small in any way, and its center is located on a long and narrow island, so we don’t have a single “center”, like in radially planned (round) cities., Rather, of course there is a center, but not one, but two or even three places that could be named ‘centers’ of NYC.
Conventionally the island of Manhattan (the central district of New York) is divided into three parts: Downtown, Midtown and Uptown. Since everything is always bigger in America :), I decided to split a walking tour ‘of the city center’ into two parts: Downtown and Midtown walking tours.
This walking tour of Midtown Manhattan is for those tourists, who like to walk a lot and "feel" new cities on their own feet!
The main attractions on our route are:
— Columbus Square, billionaires' row, Central Park (well, some of it);
— Grand Army Plaza, The Plaza Hotel;
— Fifth Ave, Rockefeller Center;
— Times Square, Theater District;
— 42nd Street, Sixth Ave, Bryant Park, NYPL;
— Grand Central Terminal;
— Empire State Building, Flatiron district.
Since even the most ardent hikers will not be able to completely avoid transport in New York, sometimes, we will have to make several trips by subway and / or taxi. New York subway and yellow taxi are an integral part of your trip to New York!
This is a private tour, a licensed sightseeing guide of New York City is at your disposal throughout the entire tour.
