A Walking Tour of Historic 19th Century NoHo
Join us for a journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area,’ home to Astors, Vanderbilts, Delanos, and the Tredwells, who lived in the Merchant’s House. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Tredwell’s home evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial center.
Visit important 19th-century landmark buildings on this tour through 21st century NoHo. We end at bustling Astor Place where the dramatic events that led to the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history, took place. And visit the site of the notorious 1857 Bond Street murder of Harvey Burdell, one of the city’s still-unsolved crimes!
Presented in partnership with the Merchants House Museum. This event is outdoors and sidewalk accessible.
