Private guide to the midtown classics: Grand Central, The Public Library, Times Square and Broadway, Rockefeller Center

The great landmarks of midtown Manhattan are famous because they truly are unique. No trip to NYC is complete without seeing them. This tour will give you an informative overview of what I call, The Classics. They are : Grand Central Station, the New York Public Library, Bryant Park, Times Square, the Broadway theater world and Rockefeller Center. This itinerary gives you a view, the historical perspective , and how these legendary buildings and locales function today. On this leisurely walk, I'll fill you up with absorbing and useful information any city visitor should know. Each stop alone is worthy of a full tour, so I boil down the essence of each locale, tempting your curiosity to hear and see more.


We meet at the most famous meet-up in NYC, the clock in the main hall of Grand Central Terminal. We proceed on 42nd St. to the main branch of the New York Public Library, after which we pass through Bryant Park on the way to Times Square. From there we turn east and north, up Sixth Ave. , past Radio City, to the Channel Gardens of Rockefeller Center.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: We can either meet at Grand Central Station or at your hotel, whichever you chose. I recommend Grand Central as it gives more time for the tour.

End location: Rockefeller Center

Duration: 2 hours 30 min.


We will be walking at a moderate pace.

What’s Included

There are no additional expenses. All you need are comfortable walking shoes.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 USD - its a good idea to have some cash on hand for items or purchases of a personal nature.

What’s Extra


A Recent Review of this tour

Robert was a knowledgeable native New Yorker that shared not only historical knowledge of the city and its architecture, but personal stories that made the tour more interesting and fun. Since we had a pregnant participant and someone with limited mobility, he was conscious of that effect and allowed us to stop as often as needed to rest. During these stops he provided fun facts and historical footnotes to many of the buildings we passed along the tour. I would highly recommend Robert as a tour guide.
