UPDATE: This tour has reached its limit of 25 people — registration is now closed
Quick heads-up about a free Upper West Side walking tour next Wednesday, 8/22 (6:30 pm).
It will focus on the “Bloomingdale” neighborhood of the UWS, between 96th & 110th Streets.
The tour is free, but space is limited to 25 people and you need to RSVP by Monday, 8/20.
Discover 400 Years of History of the Upper West Side and the Bloomingdale Area Between W. 96-110 Sts.
- Architectural Landmarks
- Traces of the Colonial Past
- The Link with President Obama
The tour is led by historian Jim Mackin, and sponsored by the Park West Neighborhood History Group and Columbus-Amsterdam BID.
To RSVP, e-mail email@example.com or call 212-666-9774.
This reminds me of an article DNAinfo posted back in March but I never got around to linking to: From Bloomingdale to SoHa: One UWS Neighborhood’s Quest for a Name.
It’s worth a read.
