New York is a skyscraper city and there is no better time to view Manhattan's icons than after the sun sets and the lights go on. Fueled by competition and a dash of audacity, New York City is still producing one of mankind's most remarkable skyline.
Join Free Tours by Foot on this 'open-top' walking (and subway) Manhattan night tour. These monuments of stone, steel and glass were meant to be viewed in the artificial glow of watts of electric light. This tour differs from our Midtown Manhattan Tour by taking in Madison Square Park to visit the Flatiron and the original Met-life Buildings and does not visit the Waldorf Astoria or Park Avenue.
