Untapped New York’s Insider tours get you into the city’s most off-limit locations! In the past, Insiders have walked on the employees-only catwalk in the Rose Reading Room of the New York Public Library, climbed atop the Little Red Lighthouse, and descended into the abandoned beer vaults of an abandoned Brooklyn Brewery. Coming up, Insiders will have the chance to experience ARTECHOUSE’s latest immersive show, attend a jazz concert in New York City’s newest theatre space, and get together for a Holiday Insider Hour at Bronx Brewery’s East Village location.
In the Insiders on-demand archive, you’ll find our exclusive sit-down interview series with the late architect Richard Roth Jr. You can also watch in-depth presentations and live stream tours hosted by Untapped New York’s Cheif Experience Officer Justin Rivers, on topics such as the lost buildings of New York, abandoned spaces, and the secrets of iconic landmarks. There are also recorded book talks, interviews, and presentations with New York City creatives including Fish Eddy founder Julie Gaines, Wild City author Thomas Hynes, architectural historian Andrew Alpern and so many more!

Divine New York Virtual Talk: Inside NYC’s Sacred Spaces
Manhattan is home to a remarkably diverse range of churches and synagogues, many of them several hundred years old. As we walk past them, we often find ourselves wondering about their history and what they look like inside. This virtual event takes us on an exclusive tour through the uplifting interiors of 65 houses of worship in Manhattan. See the interiors of iconic landmarks like the Eldridge Street Synagogue, and Trinity Church as well off-the-beaten-path places like the rustic Church of the Resurrection on East 74 th Street, and the gothic crypt of the Church of the Intercession in Washington Heights. These and many more are featured in the new book Divine New York: Inside the Historic Churches and Synagogues of Manhattan.
Secrets of Riverside Drive and Riverside Park: Virtual Book Talk
How and why did Riverside Park and Riverside Drive come to be – and what went wrong in the process? Join Upper West Sider Stephanie Azzarone in exploring the creation and evolution of Park and Drive through the eyes of the movers and shakers responsible for it: the powerful men who conceived it, promoted it, designed it – and later redesigned it. While some of their names are well known – Frederick Law Olmsted and Robert Moses among them – others have been long forgotten.
A Vanishing New York Virtual Book Talk
Featuring the photography of author and documentary filmmaker John Lazzaro, A Vanishing New York is a photographic essay that explores some of the most evocative abandoned sites in the Empire State and puts their individual stories in the larger context of New York’s historical legacy. This virtual talk will take you inside New York state’s most incredible abandoned spaces through Lazzarro’s images.
Holiday “Insider” Hour at Bronx Brewery East Village
Join Insiders for a drink and merriment at The Bronx Brewery, New York City’s premier community-focused craft brewer. Bronx Brewery team members will be on hand to answer any questions you might have as you explore the space which features a fully-functional brewery built into the bi-level seating area.
