(Free) Guided Tours in Manhattan?

Jump to last reply

I did a search here, including reading the The 100 Best Free Things to Do in New York City thread:

I will be visiting Manhattan in mid-March for 3.5 days. I have been to Manhattan many times before and have done most of the touristy things. So I'm interested in taking guided tours (preferably free) to learn more about a specific place. In other words, I am looking for guided tours of a particular building/attraction rather than a guided tour of the entire Manhattan.

So far, I have come up with:

1) Walking tours of Central Park by the Central Park Conservancy. However, there are 10 different tours. Has anyone done them and which one would you recommend? Bear in mind my visit is in mid-March.

2) Grand Central Station

3) NYPL tour

4) How is the guided tour of Lincoln Center? It's not free; but I enjoy operas and will be attending 2 operas at the Met during my visit in March.

What else are out there? I am interested in history, architecture, art. Thanks in advance.
