Walking Tour – 19th Century NoHo: A Century of Change
Join us for a socially distanced journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area,’ home to wealthy merchant families like the Tredwells. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Merchant’s House evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial and cultural center during the 19th century.
Stops include Colonnade Row, home to the Astors, Delanos, and Vanderbilts; the Astor Library, now the Public Theater; Tompkins Market, where the Tredwells bought their food; and bustling Astor Place, site of the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history.
And what’s a plunge into the past without a little scandal? You’ll visit 31 Bond Street, where Dr. Harvey Burdell was murdered (and still unsolved!) in 1857, a sure sign of a changing neighborhood.
Walking Tours are in-person events. Tour meets outside the museum and lasts one hour.
Capacity is strictly limited and masks are required for all participants over age 2.
