A Christmas Holiday Walking Tour of Park Avenue, 5th Avenue and Rockefeller Center will light up your holiday season!
On this 75-minute tour the noted Christmas Historian Sibyl McCormac Groff, who coined the word Gothamtide, will explain how Christmas became the most important holiday towards the end of the 19th century due to New Yorkers such as Washington Irving, John Pintard, Clement Clark Moore and Thomas Nast.
Gothamtide decorations and festivities continue to build on traditions begun in the 19th century. The tour explains Gothamtide - our shared common, universal and secular holiday traditions - as the group weaves around from Park Avenue to Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center.
So enjoyable is this pleasant but invigorating walk through midtown Manhattan that many tour goers sign up year after year - and Sibyl always manages to add new venues, new sites and new experiences to keep the tour fresh.
