Secret Lives Tours

The Secret Lives Tours  highlight some of the most original and rarely-seen spaces in New York. The series takes attendees inside unique and spectacular spaces in the city, both big and small, to learn about their purpose, history and the many parts of historic preservation that go into landmarking some of these spaces.

Although most of these tours are announced to the public, there are occasions where the Historic Districts Council only releases event information to members of HDC.  Which is more reason for you to join us today!
