VIRTUAL TOUR * SELF-GUIDED WALKING TOUR
Marvelous Morningside. Visit the “academic acropolis,” where the monumental architecture of academic and spiritual institutions is softened by an impressive diversity of apartment houses and parks. This 45 minute walking tour spans two historic districts and transports participants to the mid-century, when the heightened creativity of the Beat Generation was matched by the social planning of David Rockefeller, who developed the neighborhood’s northern boundary. During the tour, discover the unique markers of the neighborhood’s global influence and storied past.
