SKYSCRAPER MUSEUM WALKING TOURS: THE NORTH NEIGHBORHOOD

The Winter Garden at Brookfield Place 230 Vesey Street, New York, NY

This tour covers the north residential neighborhood, which was developed in several phases, beginning with Stuyvesant High School at the northeast edge and the esplanade and Rockefeller Park along the Hudson. A diagonal avenue lined with apartment buildings creates one face of the neighborhood, while the inner courts of the large blocks are connected by the delightful Teardrop Park. We will also explore the history and design of the Irish Hunger Memorial completed in 2001, located two blocks from ground zero.
