Fifth Avenue History Walk and Live Jazz

Fifth Avenue History Walk and Live Jazz

star-5

The best that New York has to offer - amazing history, dizzying landmarks and sounds of jazz! Join me for a walk along Fifth Ave - the name associated with wealth, glitz, and glamor. Fifth Ave is one of the best-known streets in the world, especially the stretch known as Millionaire Row. Once upon a time, it was lined with the finest homes of New York's wealthiest people - a place of ambition, intrigue, scandal, and the most spectacular balls ever given. This tour is not just about the landmarks, it's about the history of New York during the Gilded Age and about the people like the Vanderbilts, the Astors, the Rockefellers, who shaped it into the metropolis. It's about millionaires and architects, visionaries and beautiful models, artists and writers whose names are forever connected to the 5th Avenue. The tour will end at a place where the sounds of jazz rule the night ( food and drinks are available and highly advisable!)
