AIANY Around Manhattan Architecture Tours
From now through to January 2, 2015, two, three and even four of these architecture tours have been scheduled for students of architecture, professionals and the general public alike. Guided by AIA New York members, the New York City architecture tour will circumnavigate Manhattan. You will take in the “starchitecture” of the West Side, skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan, and the icons of the East River. These world famous monuments and more recent waterfront architecture can be viewed in comfort and style from the climate-controlled, enclosed back deck observatory, or from our open bow for some fresh air and sunlight. Light hors d’ oeuvres and a complimentary beer, wine, or Champagne is included.

AIANY Lower Manhattan Architecture Tours
From now through to October 30, 2014, visitors and locals to New York City can take part in several Lower Manhattan Architecture Tours with narration provided by members of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) New York Chapter. As always, the commentary provided is general enough for visitors, yet detailed enough for the locals, design students and professionals! (Students can also take advantage of a reduced ‘student’ tickets on this tour.) During the 90 minute cruise, passengers will cover all the major sites of Lower Manhattan (below 59th Street) and pass beneath the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges while taking in monuments, architecture, parks and infrastructure.
