Preservationist and architect Angel Ayon will give a guided tour of the Harlem Fire Watchtower and Acropolis.

Built in 1857, the structure is the only surviving example of cast-iron watchtowers built throughout the city during the 19th century. The stone Acropolis was created by the Works Project Administration in the 1930s as an observation plaza with 360-degree views of upper Manhattan.
