While New York may not seem to be the centre of the shedworking world, Shedworking has recently featured a clutch of interesting Manhattan rooftop shedworking structures and of course there is also The Museum of Modern Art's summer exhibition Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling (20 July - 20 October 2008) to visit which features various prefab structures of interest.
And while you're there, you're bound to want to take a tour of the city. One way of doing so is on a hop-on, hop-off bus tour with NYC Tours who have numerous colourful double-deckers (featuring top deck-only seating and a state-of-the-art public address system with speakers located under every seat,) whizzing around the must-see sights of the city. There are also a number of special packages (harbour cruises, museum visits shopping tours, night tours, etc). Tours vary in length but are usually around two to three hours.
So for example, on the Downtown Tour you get to visit Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Macy's, Empire State Building, SoHo, Chinatown, Little Italy, Lower East Side, United Nations, Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Broadway Theatre District. And if the weather's rotten ponchos are provided and there is also a removable, see-through canopy to keep you warm but still let you see.
