Worth Avenue Association Historic Walking Tours

Beginning Wednesday, November 22, 2023 and ending April 24, 2024

Every Wednesday starting November 22, 2023 the Worth Avenue Association conducts a 75- minute historical walking tour led by Mr. Rick Rose, our historical docent.  Through colorful anecdotes and commentary, the exciting and informative tours explores the origins and character of Worth Avenue, its unique architecture, the historical significance of many of its legendary landmarks and some of its famous residents.

The tour begins at 10:30 am in Via Amore at 256 Worth Avenue across from Tiffany & Co. and Chanel.  There is mostly free two-hour parking on the street or at the Apollo parking lot for a fee.  The cost of the tour is $25 per person and a portion of which benefits a “Charity of Choice” each year.  Registration is required by purchasing a ticket on Eventbrite.com at

The tour is “rain or shine”. Weather related tour changes/cancellations will be announced by 9:30am on tour day, 1 hour before tour begins and will be posted in EventBrite, where you can view any announcements. No announcements will be made if the tour is scheduled to take place.  Please be prompt for the tour so that we may check you in and issue your participating wrist band for identification.

Tours are limited to 40 participants to enhance the tour experience.  If the tour is sold out, you can add your name to the waiting list.  The waiting list will open up only if more tickets become available for that tour date.  The waiting list does not mean that you have a ticket.  All tour participants must have a ticket pre-purchased on Eventbrite.  

The Historical Walking Tours of Worth Avenue are completely wheelchair accessible, as there are no steps throughout the entire tour.  The tour is about ¾ miles in length and moves along briskly between stops along the route.  Participants with mobility issues are encouraged to use wheelchairs or electric scooters. Wheelchair users are given priority positioning during the stops on the tour.  The Worth Avenue Association does not supply wheelchairs or scooters.
