Francis Morrone A New Yorker’s New York

7 of 24

Morrone
wrote the book on New York architecture—literally. The author and historian has
published nine works (with three more on the way) about the city’s buildings. He
started leading neighborhood tours, from architecture-focused walks of the
Upper East Side to financial-history trips through Lower Manhattan, to promote
his writings. Now
he can’t get enough of the stories the Big Apple has to tell.

Tour Highlight: Morrone
is the only guide with access to private tours of the Plaza Hotel, a trip he
loves for the “endless stories to tell of Eloise, the Beatles, Truman Capote,
and so on.”
