Fall Architecture Walking Tour

Celebrate Our City: Touring the Magic of Manhattan Architecture

October 24, 2020 • 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

[Rain Date: October 25, 2020] 

Join us for our re-imagined 39th Biannual Fall House Tour! This season’s event has been converted into an outdoor walking tour to celebrate the city’s fabulous architecture and design through two separate neighborhood walking tours of the Upper East Side and Harlem.



Each neighborhood tour is expected to go from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and will include between 13 to 18 points of interest, along with our signature champagne stops and lunch partners.

In Harlem, tour attendees will experience the Italianate architecture of the Langston Hughes house as well as the ‘southern town’ vibe of the Astor Row homes.

The Upper East Side tour will highlight the glamour of ‘’The Street of Millionaires’’ on 70th Street, the 18th century European domestic architecture of the beautiful Frick Museum, and may include a quick stop at our own Astor House!

Choose the neighborhood tour of your preference, as well as either a self-guided (with a printable map and audio recordings) or a VIP docent-led experience. Committee volunteers will be posted along the routes to provide printed maps and directions or to assist with website access.

Self-Guided Tours 

Choose your own starting point! Tour attendees will receive a PDF map and access to a special link to pre-recorded content and fun facts for each point of interest. For the most immersive experience, please bring your own smartphones and headphones to access the walking tour website.

VIP Tours

For docent-led VIP tours, groups will be limited to a maximum of 10 guests to support social distancing practices. Tour attendees will meet their groups at their pre-assigned starting locations at 11:00 a.m. CDC guidelines will be closely followed throughout the entire event, and if for any reason the event cannot commence, ticket refunds will be honored or may be applied to a future reservation for the Spring 2021 House Tour.

CDC guidelines, including mask wearing, will be closely followed throughout the entire event.
