The Village of Morrisania: The First Planned Community

In, 1848, the Village of Morrisania became the first planned community in what is now The Bronx. Although it was founded as a “dry” community by native-born temperance advocates, German-American settlers soon developed a thriving beer culture there. On this walk, we will learn about Morrisania’s citizens and see some of the original buildings of the village, many over 150 years old. Join Dr. Marian Swerdlow on this rarely examined tour of Morrisania. This tour will meet at the northwest corner of East 163rd Street and Third Avenue. Take Bronx buses #13, #15, #21, or #6 to 163rd Street and Third Avenue.

Call 718-881-8900 to reserve your spot. Tickets are $10 each for members and $20 for non-members.
