Join me as we venture into the magical wizarding world of New York! Starting at the City Hall we journey through the history of Fantastic Beasts in New York in film, book & even real-life form!
We’ll see the snippets as they played out in the movies while I explain the behind-the-scenes stories of those locations. We venture through New York seeing the inspirational locations for Newt, his Friends & Beasts. Sites include: Second Salem Church, Brooklyn Bridge, Woolworth Building (NYC Ministry of Magic), Subway Station, Russ & Daughter’s (Jacob’s Cake Shop), A Writers House (Queenie & Tina’s House), Macy’s, where Newt’s Demiguse (named Dougal) hid, the Diamond District – in search of the Niffler, as well as others I don’t want to spoil!
We finish at Central Park where Newt did that funny dance for the hunt for the Erumpent!
After the tour, you’ll get to see some real-life fantastic beasts in Central Park Zoo which is right next to where we finish the walking tour.
So come along and be immersed as we Alohomora! our way into Newt Scamander’s Magical New York.
While witches and wizards of ALL ages are totally welcome, there is a LOT of walking.
