Spring Walking Tours

Even though the thought of spring and warmer temperatures is hard to grasp this year, my architectural walking tours with 92Y start up again next week. As of today, the forecast for the first tour is a high of only 45°F, but at least the tour on that day includes lots of interiors.

Below is the schedule and descriptions. Click on the links to purchase tickets.
