NYC - (P) Walking Tour - "Treasures of the Middle of the Upper West Side" 11AM (ET)

Saturday, November 18, 2023, 11:00 AM -12:30 PM

Join us for a private Saturday morning walking tour to view “Treasures of the Middle of the Upper West Side” with our frequent tour guide Leigh Hallingby.

Walking between West 86th and West 95th streets, we will see a number of buildings associated with famous writers, musicians, and activists.

Belnord Apts. West 86 St

Trinity School

The tour will also include two gorgeous synagogues, an amazing Community Garden created in 1976, and several schools, among many architecturally interesting sights.

We will end at the home of a young girl whose world-famous letter to a newspaper editor in 1897 is now a part of every holiday season.

After our tour you can join fellow TTNers for (pay your own) lunch at a nearby restaurant.

NOTE: This outdoor tour will be rain or shine unless there is a National Weather Service emergency.

Please wear comfortable shoes, bring water, and an umbrella if appropriate.
