SKYSCRAPER MUSEUM WALKING TOURS: THE NORTH NEIGHBORHOOD

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

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.

RIVER & BLUES: CEDRIC BURNSIDE & MAGGIE ROSE

Wagner Park 20 Battery Place, New York

After years of honing her chops and making her name as a force-of-nature vocalist, the Nashville-based singer/songwriter Maggie Rose has dreamed up her own unbridled collision of rock-and-roll, soul, folk, funk, and R&B. 

Cedric Burnside was born into a prominent family of North Mississippi Hill Country legends. These sensibilities are reflected across his work and impeccably showcased on his 2022 GRAMMY-winning release, I Be Trying.  Don’t miss the infectious Hill Country grooves that lend themselves readily to an urgent, modern moment.
