New York City History And Heritage Tours
|Visitors and New Yorkers alike are invited to explore the diverse heritage and rich history of the world's|
second home, New York City, during this winter's Insider's Hour program featuring one-hour tours of cultural organizations. Through March 31, 2002, a record 68 of New York's most exciting museums,
zoos, performing arts centers and historical sites throughout the city are featuring Insider's Hour tours - special one-hour explorations of the finest treasures each has to offer.
Step up to the microphone on the historic stage of the Apollo Theatre or learn the craft of making films at the American Museum of the Moving Image. Swing through the exotic Jungle World of the Bronx Zoo or inspect microbes at the New York Hall of Science. Walk with the Egyptian pharaohs at the Brooklyn Museum of Art or learn about Native American Culture at the National Museum of the American Indian. The tours are perfect for the culture lover in all of us. "Whether you have limited time in the city, are squeezing as much as possible into your trip or are visiting on business or for a convention, Insider's Hour tours are the perfect way to enjoy New York's cultural treasures," said Cristyne L. Nicholas, president & CEO of NYC & Company, the city's official tourism and marketing organization. "There's never been a better time to spend an Insider's Hour at one of our outstanding cultural institutions."
