"It was two hours into one of the city’s newest delights: the Around Manhattan Official NYC Architectural Tour. The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s similar tour has been a popular attraction since 1983, but until now, this city’s closest equivalent was the Circle Line — a very distant second. What took the New York chapter of the American Institute of Architects so long? Whatever the answer, its timing is fortuitous. It’s only recently that Manhattan’s waterfront has become the playfield of outsize architectural ambition."
My cousin, Rama Dadarkar, who is now an official New York City tour guide can be heard in the video toward the end. She is a Historic Preservation major from Columbia so consider asking for her if you plan on taking the tour
