YORKVILLE’S IMMIGRATION HISTORY: Part 3
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join HDC and Francis Morrone for a comprehensive look at a curiously under-recognized swatch of New York’s rich historic fabric. In three tours we will focus on the fascinating immigrant history of this part of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The first tour will have a bit of a focus on the Czechs, the second on the Hungarians, the third on the Germans, though all three groups, and several others, will be represented in all three tours. In addition, we will look at the broader demographic history (especially the century-long history of gentrification), and how that history is manifested in architecture, and at the histories of housing, religion, institutions, breweries, and much else. Tour 3 will cover 86th to 96th Streets. This is a rare opportunity for an in-depth, many-faceted study on foot of a whole, remarkably diverse neighborhood.

Six to Celebrate Tour- West Chelsea Street Art and Graffiti
Jun 23 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Friday, June 23, 2017

5:00-7:00 pm

Join HDC’s own street artist- turned- tour guide Patrick Waldo on this walking tour of West Chelsea, exploring the neighborhood’s wide range of graffiti, street art, and legal public art. Waldo will draw on his brief but memorable stint in the illegal world of street art to explain techniques and terminology that will give tour goers a newfound appreciation for New York’s dynamic graffiti scene. Expect to see work from ’80s icon Kenny Scharf, Brazilian twin superstars Os Gemeos, mysterious French street artist Invader, as well as many up and coming local artists hoping to carve out a place in New York City street art history.
