Conference Tour – Port Authority Bus Terminal

May 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Port Authority Bus Terminal
$20 / $15

Encompassing nearly two full city blocks, the Port Authority Bus Terminal is the biggest and busiest bus terminal on the planet — and a striking example of postmodern utilitarian architecture. Join the Historic Districts Council for a rare look behind the scenes of this Midtown Manhattan workhorse, which was originally opened in 1950 and was expanded and substantially renovated from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. The tour will be led by Mark Schaff, Assistant General Manager of the Port Authority Bus Terminal, and will include a visit to the new Performing Arts Stage. The Performing Arts Stage was created with the help of the Historic Districts Council’s own Deputy Director, Adrian Untermyer. Following the tour, participants are invited to join us for a drink at McAnn’s, an Irish pub located within the Port Authority that boasts oversized historic photographs of the original 1950s terminal.
