APA New York Metro Chapter
New York, NY

Richard Landman, AICP, Attorney Emeritus and licensed NYC sightseeing tour guide will provide walking tours of Manhattan.

Instead of looking at photos or slides we will take in the entire scene and see the surrounding aspects that influence the subject. Each of the five tours will touch on a different urban planning topic including the development of New Amsterdam, origins of zoning in America, the World Trade Center site development,Greenwich Village's urban renewal and LGBT History & Adult Use Zoning.
