There are five NYC pieces in my collection. They have been newly recorded in the summer of 2015 so they are totally up to date. There are thirty distinct attractions or historic sites in these tours – most of which you can do on foot. We’ll tell you when you need to get from one district to another by cab or subway. The main themes are “Manhattan from the Water” which is programme No. 1 – it includes a visit to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island for the immigration museum, South Street Seaport museum, and a dinner cruise around Manhattan. Programme No. 2 is around Ground Zero and the financial district with the Stock Exchange, Federal Hall, NYC City Hall, Brooklyn Bridge and on north through Chinatown and Little Italy. Programme No. 3 begins at the iconic Flatiron Building and works north through several “architectural gems” including the Chrysler Building, the Empire State, the United Nations headquarters, Grand Central Station and to the NYC Public Library. NYC programme No. 4 focuses on “entertainment” around Times Square, Broadway, Rockefeller Centre and Radio City Music Hall – with a touch of religion thrown in at St Patrick’s Cathedral. The final programme – No. 5 – concentrates on “culture and leisure” at the Lincoln Centre for Performing Arts, The Guggenheim, the natural history museum, Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The programmes lead you gently northwards to Uptown from the very southern tip of Manhattan. These guides run to… 1. 11’46″; 2. 27’00″; 3. 31’24″; 4. 22’31″; 5. 18’47”.
