A surprising number of pre- and post-Revolutionary structures survive in ‘the city that’s never finished.’ From grand country mansions to taverns, townhouses, churches, and the earliest park in New York City, one can easily visit remnants of early New-York from one tip of Manhattan Island to the other, including in Greenwich Village and the East Village. This is a great way to explore different neighborhoods, too.
Anthony Bellov takes you on a virtual tour from the comfort of your home to these landmarks in our neighborhoods and beyond – some of national importance, some you may not know exist – while sharing tips on how to visit them in person.
Anthony Bellov holds a bachelor’s in Architecture from Pratt Institute and a Master’s in Museum Leadership from Bank Street College of Education. An artist member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club, he recently presented a lecture series there, “Before Salmagundi,” exploring transformations to the 1853 Fifth Avenue mansion over the years. That series may be enjoyed on YouTube. He is a long-time volunteer and spokesperson for the Merchant’s House Museum, a board member of the American Research Center in Egypt and a member of The Society of Old Brooklynites.
