Join us as we experience this special historically significant part of Manhattan. Our first stop will be Temple Emanu-El, located on Fifth Ave. This landmark Romanesque Revival building was built in 1845 and after several restorations was completed in 1929. It is the largest Reformed Synagogue in the world. Be amazed as we are magically transported to Europe viewing the Tiffany stained glass windows, majestic ancient Jewish art work and three sets of hand sculptured bronze doors, all historically explained during our private tour. Then enjoy a sit down lunch at Carmine's, a neighborhood institution o the Upper West Side. Lunch includes: garlic bread, house salad, two types of Pasta, Chicken with lemon butter on spinach, unlimited soft drinks or iced tea, followed by delicious Tiramisu for dessert with coffee or tea. After a relaxing lunch, we'll head over to the American Museum of Natural History where you'll enjoy a private highlights tour. Then have free time to enjoy the many wonderful exhibits on your own. You can also visit the Rose Center for Earth and Space without leaving the building. Return home with a much greater appreciation for this unique part of NYC! Wear comfortable walking shoes.
