Beyond the Grid: Manhattan’s Audubon Park Neighborhood

From 1841-1864, the 21 acres north of 155th street were the farmstead of John James Audubon, who is remembered for his paintings of America’s birds. Audubon Park Alliance Director Matthew Spady will lead a tour of this historic district focusing on such architectural gems as the American Academy of Arts and Letters, streets of 19th century row houses and Trinity Cemetery.


The tour will conclude with a reception in the grand lobby of the Grinnell Apartments.

This walking tour is limited to 30 participants.                                     
Fees: $25 for Victorian Society New York members, $40 for nonmembers
