Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Come discover the treasures of the South Street Seaport District with the South Street Seaport Museum’s historian William Roka on this special guided tour. Home to some of the oldest standing structures in Manhattan, from a former rat pit to a warehouse built by one of the most famous 19th-century American architects, the buildings of the Seaport have a big story to tell: the rise of New York. You will also get a peek inside the upper floors of Schermerhorn Row, usually closed to the public, and view selected artifacts from the Seaport Museum's permanent collection. Please note that you do need to walk up 47 steps to visit the galleries in Schermerhorn Row. Cost: $30 / $20 Members
