Hello. I'm Matt Postal, an architectural historian and licensed New York City tour guide based in Brooklyn. I teach graduate classes on the history of New York City and its extraordinary 19th and 20th century architecture, research and write designation reports for the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and since 1990, lead popular and entertaining walking talks + tours throughout the five extraordinary boroughs of New York City.
For an armchair tour of some of my most favorite spaces and buildings in New York City, published in Architect magazine, click here.
Walking talks + tours are an ideal way to learn more about the Big Apple, its fascinating history, and its memorable built environment. Join me for an upcoming walk or public program and feel free to contact me about unique architectural talks + tours of New York City for private groups of any size or urban interest.
