Full description
You'll be picked up from the meeting location in a vintage car from the Jazz Age. The driver will be in full 1920s costume and will share the story of how Manhattan came to be. During the journey, you'll enjoy a 1920s playlist for some vintage ambience and get to select a 1920s accessory or two to wear.

The Midtown tour will take you past Central Park, down off of Columbus Circle, and by Carnegie Hall and the Empire State Building. You'll also cruise by Bryant Park before you reach the midpoint of the tour at the famous Flatiron building. Finally, your driver will loop back up Park Avenue and travel through the tunnels of Grand Central Terminal before returning back towards Central Park and the starting point.

The Downtown tour begins in SoHo and will take you on a journey through Tribeca, past the Woolworth Building, driving right by St. Paul's Chapel, and One World Trade Center. Cruise by Trinity Church, get an up-close photo opportunity of the Charging Bull, and pass by Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

The Downtown tour continues past Battery Park, and passes New York icons Fraunces Tavern and Delmonico’s. Loop around with a great view of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Seaport District, the original area colonized by the Dutch. Finally, travel through the neighborhoods of Chinatown and Little Italy. Pass right by Lombardi's, home of the first pizza in the United States, before returning back to Broome Street in SoHo.
