A History of Manhattan's Changing Neighborhoods
Neighborhoods have a way of changing. Some neighborhoods (think of Five Points, once the lowest of the low) have disappeared altogether, while others that catered to the upper crust (St. John’s Park, for instance) are not only gone but also for the most part now totally forgotten. And so the story continues. A neighborhood that was the crème de la crème a generation ago is today’s skim milk, and warehouse neighborhoods that harbored light industry only yesterday house kazillion-dollar condos today. Join us via Zoom for six neighborhood “walks” through history.
