The 95-minute (five-star rated) walking tour ($35 per person) meets at noon Sunday through Friday in front of the Guggenheim Museum (at the South East corner of 88th and Fifth Avenue), and ends in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (at 83rd and Fifth). Please arrive 10 minutes early. See filming locations ("The Fisher King," "Marathon Man," "American Psycho"), homes of literary icons (J.D. Salinger, Truman Capote), Central Park, and the impressive architecture of one of the country's oldest, wealthiest, and most popular filming locations in the world.

We'll also visit The Cooper Hewitt Museum of Design and The Jewish Museum while checking out filming locations from movies such as "84 Charing Cross Road," "American Animals," "The Anderson Tapes," "Cactus Flower," "The House on 92nd Street," "Maid In Manhattan," "Men In Black," "Night at the Museum," "Ransom," "When Harry Met Sally," and "The International." This is one fun walk! 

A minimum of two people are required for the tour to take place, so bring along a friend!

Gratuities are encouraged, accepted, and warmly appreciated!
