Manhattan's Great Neighborhoods

You don’t need a passport to cross 14th Street and to walk from Greenwich Village to Chelsea, but you do begin to sense that you’re in a different place. No two Manhattan neighborhoods are the same, and even within neighborhoods there are differences, sometimes on a block-by-block basis. Some swaths might seem to have been built at the same time and cut from the same cloth, but the average neighborhood has developed over time, with the ideals of one generation comfortably living next door to the ideals of another. Join us for an introductory illustrated lecture and then five walks through some of Manhattan’s great neighborhoods, enclaves and all—East Side, West Side, all around the town.
