Gargoyles bring to mind mysterious medieval castles but these creatures are here in Manhattan looking down on us every day. This tour will take us on over 23 stops through the Flatiron District as we explore its architecture and history of both. We will see dozens of gargoyles, Americas' first Art Nouveau Memorial, a Holocaust memorial, a Renaissance Obelisk a Queen Ann styled Apartment house from 1878 and so much more - the tour has 14 New York City landmarks and 5 national landmarks and each will be discussed in detail. The History There are 16 Historically styled buildings and a unique example of Belle Epoque style of architecture on a 19th century hi-rise building in Manhattan. Besides grotesque and winged monster gargoyles we will see few examples of caryatids (engaged) and atlantes. Some interesting pictures and stories about Manhattan's past are included along with close up photographs of the far-away gargoyles for those of you who do not bring binoculars or zoom lens cameras. The Guide The tour is given by Alfred Pommer, a native New Yorker, a licensed New York City guide and author of four Manhattan guide books published by the History Press and Arcadia Publishing.
