Last week, Phone.com staff from our east-coast office joined Context Travel on a walking tour of Midtown New York.
Context offers in-depth walking tours in over 30 cities worldwide, pairing travelers with local specialists—archaeologists, historians, chefs, writers—who offer a deep knowledge of their surroundings.
Our group chose a three-hour architectural tour of the city, visiting a number of landmarks, including the Chrysler Building, Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library. Our docent Matico was an architecture historian, so able to share a lot of the history and technology behind the amazing buildings that we often take for granted on our skyline.
