Tour Schuyler Mansion 

In the Footsteps of Philip Schuyler is an audio walking tour inspired by the physical and cultural changes that have taken place in the city Philip Schuyler once called home. Using a combination of sound-art and narration, the tour seeks to offer more than a recitation of facts; rather, it hopes to stimulate an imaginative link to the environment of 1765.
