Join history professor Bert Hansen for a fascinating introduction to the architectural remains of medical care in the city. While many sites of New York’s medical history have been lost, especially interiors and equipment that we can no longer view except through images, New Yorkers are fortunate that our streets still present lively remnants of the past. Hansen will place numerous NYC sites into the main chapters of medical development for the last 200 years. The lecture invites everyone to wander the city with new eyes for medical heritage.
Hansen will also host two related tours of uptown and downtown NYC medical heritage sites on the following two Saturdays (May 13 and May 20).Buy tickets/get more info now
