BPC South Neighborhood Walking Tour 1

Thu, Jun 13, 2024 at 4:00 PM

Registration for Tour 1 will open on June 1.

Tour 1 on June 13 at 4pm will explore Battery Park City's southern district, which is home to the Skyscraper Museum and includes some of BPC's earliest landscapes and infrastructure, including the residential enclaves built in the 1990s that followed the 1979 Cooper Eckstut Master Plan. Starting in the Museum's gallery to see historic views of the waterfront, the tour will visit South Cove and the green spaces that connect to the Esplanade, the first waterfront park in New York since the Brooklyn Heights Esplanade in 1951. We will also learn about current construction underway in Wagner Park, as part of the developing Resilience Action Plan of the BPC Authority. Tour 1 will be repeated on June 21.

This tour will meet at The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. Our Walking Tours are free! Reservation priority is given to Skyscraper Museum Members and to Corporate Members and their employees. Members can register by emailing [email protected] before the sign-up for Tour 1 opens to the general public on June 1. Non-members can register for Tour 1 on a space-available basis.

Registration for each tour is limited to 25 people. Confirmation emails will be sent 2 days before the event and must be confirmed by 24 hours before the event, or the reservation will be cancelled. Any updates for bad-weather cancellations will be sent to your email address.
