This tour visits Central Park and highlights the hotel in the context of the Beaux Art movement and the history of grand apartment hotels in the Upper West Side. While focusing on architecture, we'll visit the Dakota, the Ansonia, and in particular buildings of Emery Roth. The tour will also introduce guests to neighborhood life in the Upper West Side and to Central Park. We'll show guests where locals eat and shop and visit Central Park gems like Strawberry Fields and Bethesda Terrace near the hotel before guests tackle the rest of the park on their own.
