Discover New York is a tour series sponsored by the Municipal Art Society. 
These architectural and historical walking tours provide you with the seasoned expertise of the society while highlighting the best of New York City's cultural and geographical diversity. Founded in 1893, The Municipal Art Society is a private, nonprofit organization whose original aim was to beautify New York with public art. It has adapted its goals to the times and today directs its efforts toward making New York a more habitable city (an enterprise welcomed by harried New Yorkers). It champions preservation in New York City by assisting organizations that need guidance with planning, land use, zoning and development issues. The Municipal Art Society has been critical in the survival of many historical buildings. The tours, which are led by architectural and urban historians, explore famous neighborhoods and districts such as Greenwich Village, the Flatiron District, and Wall Street. Ethnic historians lead tours of Little Italy and Chinatown and the Lower East Side, pointing out New York's rich multicultural communities. Every Wednesday at 12.30 pm the society sponsors free tours of Grand Central Terminal. Since tours and meeting times vary, it is best to call ahead to request a listing of the upcoming scheduled tours. Reservations are not required for weekday walking tours, but they are sometimes necessary for Saturday walking tours.
