Stories of the Guggenheims, Pulitzers, Schiffs, Warburgs, and more!


Since the early days of the United States, 5th Avenue has been a desired address. However, since the creation of Central Park, 5th Avenue became the elite address where the rich and famous hired the greatest architects to compete over who could outdo their peers. We are left with a 100+ years of art, gossip, and hilarity. These families laid the groundwork of the American Jewish community.

Itinerary

We'll start by the Plaza Hotel at the southeastern corner of Central Park and walk up 5th Avenue with stops along the main drag, in the park, and along side streets. We'll finish at the Jewish Museum (formerly the Warburg Mansion) at 92nd Street and 5th Avenue.
