Tour |
In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.    New York City, NY; NYC

While both from Vancouver, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance coincidentally ran into each other in New York and subsequently teamed up to create the enigmatically named Bob Moses (it’s a reference to the infamous NYC city planner Robert Moses). Howie was a singer in a rock group, and Vallance was busy engineering EDM for Ultra Records, remixing the tracks of Sia and other dance heavies. What they then forged was a powerhouse producing pair of trance, progressive and alternative dance music that quickly became a Brooklyn underground mainstay.    New York City, NY; NYC

The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join Free Tours by Foot for a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.    New York City, NY; NYC
