Watch: NYC Parks Department Periscope Tour From Inside Washington Square Arch

A few days ago, the New York City Parks Department of Parks and Recreation offered a rare glimpse into the interior of Washington Square Arch through the Periscope App.

NYC Parks Commissioner Mitch Silver will take people live on Periscope inside the arch where you’ll get to see the vaulted attic space, which was once used as a NYC Parks office, and the Guastavino tiling, the famous artisan tiles you’ll recognize from Grand Central Terminal, the original City Hall subway station, Ellis Island and other civic spaces throughout New York City. The spiral staircase leads out to a roof, accessible via skylight doors.

If you missed it in the app don’t worry, as we have found this recorded version of the tour!

For more tours like this in the future fro all around the world, you need to use the Periscope App on your mobile device. Download it for FREE on:
