Curbedside tours: buy your tickets now!

Curbed’s first-ever IRL programming debuts this October

Inside the Oculus at the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.

History. Architecture. Development. At its core, this triumvirate of topics is what Curbed city sites cover most.*

And Curbed NY, launched in 2004, embodies that focus to this day. Which is why we thought, 13 years on, it was time to bring our mission to the streets and neighborhoods you know best—or are curious to get to know better.

Presenting Curbedside: a three-part series of walking tours around New York City, led by recurring contributors James Nevius, Alexandra Lange, and Nathan Kensinger.

Sign up now for one of three Saturday walks throughout October—planned to coincide with the annual, citywide Archtober—that explore Manhattan and Brooklyn from a human scale, along those three dominant themes. Tickets are $20 each, and space is limited.

Historian and author James Nevius leads a group up and around the Bowery, one of the city’s most storied thoroughfares. Investigate the street’s rough-and-tumble past as well as its present as a commercial corridor and gateway to Chinatown. BUY TICKETS HERE

Curbed architecture critic Alexandra Lange is an expert on how to look at a city: hell, she even wrote the book on it. Join her as she ambles through Lower Manhattan, taking stock of how the neighborhood has evolved over three distinct eras of design. BUY TICKETS HERE

Saturday, October 28
Photographer Nathan Kensinger’s long-running column, Camera Obscura, documents our changing city with a particular focus on the waterfront and former industrial zones. Tour the Gowanus Canal as you’ve never considered it—especially relevant on the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. BUY TICKETS HERE

*We’ve also got transportation explainers, envy-inducing homes, renovation chronicles, and an expert guide to renting, but hopefully you already knew that.
