Between soaring skyscrapers, manicured parks, and pulsating train stations, Manhattan’s Midtown district is one of the most overwhelming – and exciting – parts of New York.

Explore the lesser-known Marble Collegiate Church and then visit famed landmarks like the New York Public Library and the Morgan Library. Stroll through Madison Square Park and learn about the odd design of the Flatiron building. Discuss the innovations that allowed the city to reach new heights during the skyscraper boom of the early 1900s. Learn about the Met Life Tower and the New York Life Building among other famous towers. Of course you’ll hear all about the world-famous Empire State Building, one of the last great 20thcentury giants.
