WALK DESCRIPTION

The tour will travel north along the river walk constructed between 1990 and 1996, then west with the curvature of the river. Stories about the project itself and the buildings along the river will be featured, with the author’s caustic opinions highlighted. Tour goers are encouraged to engage the tour guide with questions and objections.  At best, the tour will be a discussion about architecture and urbanism.
