Where you'll be

We'll pass by more than two dozen places of interest, including the Broadway Theater District, the only concentration of movie palaces left in the U.S. We'll see the city's historic tallest buildings, including the first high-rise, opened in 1904.

The tour will culminate at the City Hall observation deck (NOTE: City Hall is not open on Saturday or Sunday).
