A Presentation by Ellen Williams & Steve Radlauer

In our rapidly changing city, there are still more than 150 retail establishments that have been serving New Yorkers for over a century. The Historic Shops and Restaurants of New York profiles these living landmarks, many of which are in the Village. Authors and historians Ellen Williams and Steve Radlauer will reveal the sepia-toned origins of these beloved century-old establishments, including C.O. Bigelow Chemists, Veneiro’s Bakery, Garber Hardware, and the White Horse Tavern and describe what visitors will find there today. With the holidays around the corner, this lecture will surely give you some great shopping and noshing ideas!
