  • Ground Support Cafe 399 West Broadway New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

Tour of SoHo with art based start-up Float Traveler and the Founder himself, Sascha Mombartz

From industrial wasteland to artist colony

Experience SoHo in a way you’ve never seen it before. Dive into the Cast Iron District and learn how it transformed from farmland to a dark and dangerous industrial wasteland that later became a progressive and productive breeding ground for artists.

Discover remarkable art installations by Walter DeMaria and inspired live-work spaces by Donald Judd. Explore a monumental wall sculpture and its connection to the museum on the moon. Contemplate the idea of permanent public art and learn how NYU got its hands on a Picasso – but is it really a Picasso?

Join the tour to discover how artists and innovators made New York the vibrant cultural hub it is today!

Stories & People include:
The New York Earth Room, Donald Judd, Gordon Matta-Clark, I.M. Pei, Picasso, Ken Rock, Tony Goldman, Forrest Myers, Bayard Condict Building, The Oldest New York Manhole, and more.
