11:00AM 

Join 6sqft Senior Editor Dana Schulz for a look at Stuyvesant Square, a charming neighborhood that was one of the early 20th century’s most fashionable addresses, with Greek Revival townhouses surrounding the beautifully landscaped public spaces. Stops will include the site of NYC’s very first apartment building, one of the early 20th-century’s largest maternity hospitals, the former Stuyvesant high school, and several park monuments.


Elmhurst, Queens: Part 2

Saturday, October 20, 2018

*12:30PM

Join the Elmhurst History & Cemeteries Preservation Society for this in-depth look at Elmhurst, Queens, which picks up where their last tour (this past June) left off.  This walking tour will include parts of the neighborhood and historic sites not seen on the first tour. Continue to discover Elmhurst’s beginnings as a Dutch & English settlement called Middleburgh (366 years ago), its ties to the American Revolution, its transformation into the town of Newtown, then Elmhurst, and see the multi-cultural community it is today. The tour will be led by lifelong Elmhurst residents and members of the newly-formed nonprofit organization Elmhurst History & Cemeteries Preservation Society. The tour will be covering a range of historic sites, fun facts, pop culture, local culture and some of the organization’s preservation initiatives in the community.

* Please note the Elmhurst tour is expected to run three hours

    I would like to see more information on the dynamics of the tours. For the tours in Sept., where do you meet(Atlantic Ave., Arthur Ave., Elmhurst), how long is the tour, how much of the Elmhurst jazz tour is walk, ride, sit and eat. I cannot register for a tour without knowing that I can or cannot participate fully. Thank you for your prompt response.

      Meeting locations and directions for each site are provided after registration. Each tour is approximately two hours except for Elmhurst which will run approximately three hours. The Corona-East Elmhurst tour is $40 for CEEHPS members and $45 for general admission. I hope you are able to join us on the tours.
