      Free Memorial Day Weekend Walking Tour “From Decoration Day to Memorial Day”

      This Memorial Day weekend, join our professional guide and historian Miriam Berman on a free walking tour through the historic Flatiron District and learn about the history of Memorial Day in this neighborhood. Did you know that the Worth Monument served as the main welcoming and viewing site for U.S. Presidents and other important politicians to honor those who had lost their lives in the war? Did you know that Memorial Day was called ‘Decoration Day’ in the early 1900s? Our special tour, “From Decoration Day to Memorial Day“, will lead you to some of the city's most notable landmarks, including the Flatiron Building, New York Life Insurance Building, MetLife Clock Tower, and Appellate Courthouse. The tour meets on Sunday, May 26 at 11 a.m. - rain or shine - at the tip of the Flatiron Building, on 23rd Street just east of 5th Avenue. No advance registration is required. Tours are provided by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID). For more information, visit: http://www.flatirondistrict.nyc/free-walking-tour
