The Tour Gargoyles bring to mind mysterious medieval castles but these stone creatures are here in Manhattan looking down on us every day. This tour will take us on over 32 stops through the Flatiron District and Gramercy Park Historic District as we explore the architecture and history of both neighborhoods. We will see dozens of gargoyles, Americas' first Art Nouveau Memorial, a Holocaust memorial, a Renaissance Obelisk and so much more, including a warehouse with an Art Nouveau facade and a Queen Ann styled apartment house from 1878 with gargoyles. The tour has 16 New York City landmarks and 6 national landmarks and each will be discussed in detail. The History There are 19 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 cherubs and playful gargoyles along with a 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.
