“THEY WERE HERE” Launch Event!
June 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
LW celebrates the launch of THEY WERE HERE, a unique collection of architectural and social histories that tells the stories of the many immigrants who worked and lived along Columbus Avenue.
Tom Miller (aka the “Daytonian in Manhattan” blogger) guides us on a virtual tour along Columbus Avenue beginning in the 1880’s. Storefront by storefront you’ll be amazed as we enter the streetscape of the earliest days of the Upper West Side: Politics, Vaudeville, Kings of Industry, New Arrivals and, of course, plenty of Scoundrels!
With special guests (invited):
Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer
Council Member Ben Kallos
Council Member Helen Rosenthal
