Since the Flatiron Partnership began offering the tours a decade ago, more than 6,100 people – from 59 countries and more than 425 cities in the United States and Canada – have taken part in more than 500 excursions.

Historians leading the tours are: Miriam Berman, author of “Madison Square: The Park and Its Celebrated Landmarks” and “New York in Words and Images”, a book of New York postcards; Mike Kaback, a native New Yorker who has an unquenchable enthusiasm for everything about the city; and, Fred Cookinham, author of “The Age of Rand: Imagining an Objectivist Future World”.

Tours take place every Sunday starting at 11:00 a.m. and meet at the southwest corner of Madison Square Park (in front of the William Seward statue) at 23rd Street and Broadway.
