Tuesday, October 31: Around Manhattan Boat Tour: Bridges, Infrastructure, and the Evolving City

Based on AIANY’s signature Around Manhattan Architecture Tour, this three-hour, full circumnavigation around Manhattan will reveal the stories behind the iconic bridges and infrastructure that support the city’s architecture.

As an archipelago, New York City is shaped by engineering marvels we take for granted everyday: bridges and tunnels, rail and roadways, power and water supply, and waste disposal systems. John Kriskiewicz, professor of architectural history and planning at Parsons, offers insights and historical anecdotes that bring the story of the city’s development and vital infrastructure to life.

Complimentary drinks and snacks are also provided. The tour starts at 1:45 pm, and will meet at Chelsea Piers (Pier 62). Register online.
