The Greatest 19th Century Photograph of Morningside Heights: Unlocking a Neighborhood’s History

The Greatest 19th Century Photograph of Morningside Heights: Unlocking a Neighborhood’s History
A program of LandmarkWest!
Featuring Rob Garber of the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group
Thursday, January 11, 6:00 pm

BNHG member and neighborhood historian Rob Garber takes us back to an era when the neighborhood of Morningside Heights was profoundly different than it is today. Taking a deep dive into one very special late-19th century photograph, Rob guides us through a time before automobiles and apartment buildings dominated the Upper West Side – when the “Acropolis on the Hill” had a reputation for sin, and when ten thousand bicycles paraded up Riverside Drive on a single June day.
Anyone on the BNHG mailing list can participate in this LandmarkWest!
Zoom program free of charge by entering the promo code RobG in the non-members ticket registration. Register here.
