      Since the 19th century, the neighborhood of SoHo (south of Houston) has housed the city’s upper class, its first red light district, luxury textile industries, some of the country’s most influential Modernist artists, and today, an array of hip, cutting edge boutiques and galleries. Probably the most prominent visible remnant of SoHo’s early bygone era is its stunning collection of cast iron architecture. This three hour walking tour in the company of a practicing architect or architectural historian uses these buildings and their various iterations as a textbook for examining the neighborhood’s rich two hundred year history as a creative and trendsetting catalyst in New York City.

      Context Travel is an in-depth alternative to traditional tours. We are a network of architects, historians, art historians, and specialists who organize over 300 different walks in 12 cities around the world.

      Cost: Payment required - 65.00
