April 22, 2020: "The Many Lives of Riverside Park" with Lucie Levine
Upper West Siders love their Riverside Park. But before the gardens and ballfields, there were forests and rocky bluffs followed soon by 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 — Lucie Levine weaves together the history -and the many lives- of our “other” great park to the West.
Lucie Levine is a writer, historian and New York City tour guide. She is founder of Archive on Parade, as well as Contributing History Writer at 6sqft and News Editor at Greenpointers.
