The 95-minute (five-star rated) walking tour ($35 per person) meets at noon daily 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. You'll even see the Catholic Girls' school where Lady Gaga went to high school.
