Obscura Society NY: Urban Passageways

  • 810 8th Avenue New York, NY, 10019 United States (map)

Between the skyscrapers of Midtown lies an extensive network of indoor passageways that the majority of New Yorkers regularly pass by.

Friday, September 23rd, join the New York Obscura Society and history buff Robert Amell for an insider's tour of the corridors, pathways and hidden gems of central Manhattan. From stunning, Art Deco underground halls to the massive Lichtenstein mural hung on the wall of a corporate lobby, Amell will be sharing the impressive array of art, architecture and history waiting to be found beneath the chaos of one of New York's most bustling neighborhoods - you just have to know where to look.

Discover hidden oases within the heart of Manhattan, the city's most luxurious secret public restrooms and the routes and passageways to move through Midtown during the most torrential of downpours without ever getting wet. Even the most seasoned New Yorker will learn something new.
