New York Walking Tour: The Gilded Age World of Edith Wharton

Saturday, July 8 at 10:30 am

A two-hour tour led by Carl Raymond that transports you back to Edith Wharton’s New York

The great American novelist Edith Wharton was a New Yorker. Although she spent tremendous parts of her life traveling in Europe and ultimately settling in France, it was the Gilded Age metropolis of New York in which she set the majority of her major fiction and stories.  

This unique tour will trace the life and quite literally the footsteps of Edith Wharton through the streets and neighborhoods she and her famous characters knew so well. Our explorations will include not only sites associated with Wharton’s life but also locations used as settings for her novels.

Carl is also available for private events, live or virtual, please email carl (at) for more information.
