One To World Walk: The Two Squares – Union to Madison

May 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $16.00

Uncover the secrets behind New York City’s iconic urban landscape on our immersive walking tour led by a distinguished expert!


Join us as we stroll through Gramercy Park and the Flatiron District, delving into the principles that defined the city’s grid system. We’ll also explore how public spaces like Madison and Union Square were ingeniously designed to fit within irregular city blocks. Through an engaging and interactive experience, you’ll gain a deep understanding of NYC’s architectural evolution from 1811 to the present day, developing a newfound appreciation for the intricacies of urban planning.


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.


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.
