National Tourism Week FREE Tour May 12, 2017
In honor of National Tourism Week, NYC Guides Association member A Guide Named Sue invites visitors on a "tourist guide's daze off" FREE tour from Grand Central Terminal to the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens.
The tour will meet in Grand Central at 12:30. After a brief introduction to Grand Central, we'll visit the Transit Museum Annex to see the latest exhibit and buy MetroCards if needed.
We'll travel by subway to Queens and make a brief visit to the Fisher Landau Art Center. Then we will bus and/or walk to the museum on 35th Avenue.
The tour will end sometime between 3 and 3:30. Sue has a ticket for the 4PM performance of Peter and the Star Catcher at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts . You can buy tickets here if you wish.
Sue will provide an overview of after tour possibilities and directions. The Moving Image Museum is open FREE after 4PM. There are great places to eat and drink in the neighborhood including the Astor Room. You can visit the Murals at Welling Court and the sculptures at Socrates Sculpture Park . If you cut out early, you can visit the Noguchi Museum before 5PM. You can take a bus to Roosevelt Island and return to Manhattan on the Tramway .
The tour is FREE. Participants will pay for their own transportation and any pre or post tour expenses.
