It can be easy to forget that Mad Men is about more than its antihero’s addiction to business, booze and broads: The period drama, which sadly comes to a close this season, is also a tribute to New York City in all its 1960s splendor. Get inside the ethos of the era ahead of Sunday’s season premiere on this midtown walking tour of some of the series’s most notable locations. Walk the hallowed halls of the Time & Life Building, home to Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce; roam the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria, where Don Draper’s downed a business drink or two; and learn about the Lever House, Seagram and Pan-Am (now MetLife) buildings, and other architectural icons of the era. Call 212-465-3331 for reservations and meeting place.
