One To World Walk: Architecture Tour Around Medieval Manhattan

April 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $16.00

Discover how Dutch colonial roots shaped the winding streets and unique architecture of Lower Manhattan on our exclusive walking tour!


We’ll navigate the perimeter of New Amsterdam, the 1664 iteration of NYC, to uncover why downtown proves trickier to traverse compared to the orderly grid above Houston Street. As we meander through hidden alleyways and landmark buildings, you’ll gain a fresh perspective on the city’s early days while connecting with fellow architecture enthusiasts and history buffs.


Our guide, William Singer, AIA, is a Code and Zoning Specialist for The City of New York Department of Buildings Development and Technical Affairs. He is an expert in the design and construction of large-scale public facilities. His major projects have included justice centers, transportation hubs, and cultural centers. Before joining the Department of Buildings he was a partner at Gruzen Samton, a NYC & Virginia-based architecture, planning, interior design and systems engineering firm. A Fulbright fellow (Slovenia, 1993-94), he holds a Master of Architecture degree from the School of Design at North Carolina State University, as well as a Master of Arts in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2004, Singer received a City of New York Arts Commission Excellence in Design for the renovation design of El Museo Del Barrio.


Don’t miss this chance to experience Manhattan through the lens of its Dutch colonial past! William Singer has generously sponsored tickets for the first five students who register, so act fast and secure your spot today! Sponsored tickets are limited to one per order.


In case of rain, the event will be held one week later on April 21st.
