To reserve email

Join us Sunday, April 28, at 2:00pm, for an excursion through historic West Chelsea. Our walk encompasses everything from early 19th-century houses to industrial buildings and factories (including the birthplace of the Oreo). We'll see the General Theological Seminary, built on the apple orchard of Clement Clarke Moore, who was not only the author of A Visit from St. Nicholas('Twas the Night Before Christmas), but also a major real estate developer in early New York. We'll also talk about the High Line, which is either a triumph of urban renewal or the last nail in the coffin of the real Lower West Side. (The tour ends near the High Line for those who want to stroll it afterwards.)

To reserve:
Email with your

* Name
* Number of people in your party
* A cell phone where we can reach you before the tour in case of any changes

The meeting place for the tour will be emailed to you as your confirmation. (We try to get confirmations out in about 24 hours.) Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first served basis and in order for everyone to see and hear, we are going to cap the number of people who can attend, so do reserve as soon as you can.

You can pay by cash only at the start of the tour.

If you cannot make this date and time, the tour is, of course, available for private bookings. Email us and we'll set something up for you & your group.

Copies of Inside the Apple will be available for sale and signing.

Hope to see you there!
