“The Man With the Sawed-Off Leg And Other Tales of a New York Block”: Author’s Talk with Daniel J. Wakin
Wednesday, February 21st 6:30pm – 7:45pm *2-for-1 tickets for LW! Partner-level members*
History, crime, and architecture collide in author and New York Times editor Dan Wakin’s debut novel set in his own UWS neighborhood. Period photos and rare video and audio clips take us back to the early 1900s and a truly eclectic collection of Upper West Siders, from a vicious crew of hoodlums whose heist shocked the city to the glamorous mistress of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst. A great night!
Thursday, February 22nd 7:30am – 11:30am
Upper West Siders love history, food…and to gab. ABC Studios has been part of the Upper West Side for 40 years and “The Chew” is essentially a deluxe foodie gabfest. A perfect match! On February 22nd LW! is heading across the street to the hit program “The Chew” to join the studio audience for a morning of food, flavor, and fun. As a LW! member, you’re invited– but tickets are limited, so act fast!
Sunday, April 22nd 1:00pm – 3:00pm
The first of two tours exploring the architectural and historic riches of the UWS’s northernmost historic districts. Enjoy a guided walk along the gracious blocks of West End Avenue and Riverside Drive to view examples of the late 19th and early 20th Century architecture that define this beautiful area. North of 100th Street, you’ll be introduced to more special buildings and their fascinating inhabitants, including the Art Deco Master Apartments, with its tales of artistic genius, the occult, and international intrigue.
Sunday, April 29th 1:00pm – 2:30pm
Late April, early May is when most of our city’s trees burst into bloom. Explore the gorgeous trees, their blossoms, pollinators, and returning migrating birds around the wetland known as The Pool in the northern end of Central Park with Leslie Day, author of several field guides to the natural world of New York City.
