This 3-hour walking tour begins by showing off the beautiful art-deco lobby of the Chrysler Building and by sharing the intriguing story behind its construction, which involved a 3-way race for the title of world’s tallest skyscraper! Then, head to another world-famous landmark, Grand Central Terminal, and spend the next half hour or so exploring the largest railroad terminal in the world and a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Here you’ll visit the Main Concourse with its vaulted Milky Way ceiling as well as the unique Whispering Gallery.
After leaving the Terminal and enjoying a small snack, the tour then heads to the Beaux Arts masterpiece: New York Public Library. You’ll learn about the building’s beautiful artwork and history, and stroll through its marble halls to see one of the surviving copies of the Gutenberg Bible.
