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.
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.
