When the coronavirus crisis hit New York City, we adapted quickly here at Untapped New York. One of the new initiatives was a virtual addition to our Insiders membership, offering online tours and talks you can join in live! We’re offering two months of free membership with code STAYHOME, to get you through the coronavirus containment period.
Today at noon, we’ll be offering a live virtual tour of Victorian Flatbush with Untapped New York tour guide Jeremy Wilcox. Last week, we hosted the director of Flushing Town Hall who gave us a tour of the amazing cultural spot in Queens and performed pieces on the violin on the stage. We also hosted an artist talk with Aaron Asis, founder of Unforgotten Films and a prolific site-specific installation artist. And on Thursday, join in on a book talk on Secret Brooklyn, focusing on some of the remote outdoor activities in the book.
We will have at least two virtual events per week. All the virtual events are recorded and uploaded to a virtual content portal accessible to Untapped New York Insiders, so even if you can’t attend one of the live events, you can watch it later. And, you also get a discount code to a virtual tour of Grand Central led by our Chief Experience Officer Justin Rivers.
When this is all over, you can join in on our upcoming in-person tours of New York City’s off-limits places, of which we have some already on the calendar including a tour of the Little Red Lighthouse, a tour of the Naval Cemetery Landscape, and a tour of the LILAC Steamship. All Insiders events are free with membership. We’ll also be rescheduling many of our postponed Insiders events, including an architect-led tour of the TWA Hotel, architect-led tour of the Statue of Liberty Museum, an experience on the Madame Morbid Trolley, behind-the-scenes tour of City Hall, and access into ARTECHOUSE.
