The Many Lives of Riverside Park via Zoom
April 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Upper West Siders love their Riverside Park and appreciate it even more these days. But before the gardens and ballfields, there were forests and rocky bluffs roamed by the likes of Poe. But soon came the trains and the noise…and the politics. Hear how industry and privilege collided on the banks of the Hudson. From Olmsted to Moses; rail yards to court yards; the yacht club to the Boat Basin — come dive into the incredible history of Riverside Park! Lucie Levine brings the past vividly to life, weaving together the history -and the many lives- of our “other” great park to the West. Limited lines-RSVP required.
