Postcard Thursday: Madison Square Walking Tour on June 19
Thanks to everyone who came out for our Third Annual Alexander Hamilton walk this past weekend. For June, we thought we'd try something a little different and offer a walk that covers a small amount of ground but a wide swath of history:
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About MADISON SQUARE
(but were afraid to ask)
EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT MADISON SQUARE
(But were afraid to ask)
A WALKING TOUR OF MADISON SQUARE with
"INSIDE THE APPLE" and "FOOTPRINTS IN NEW YORK"
Sunday, June 19, 2016 at 1:00pm
$20 per person -- early bird special (reserve on or before Tuesday, June 14)
$25 per person -- for reservations made on or after June 15
*** add a copy of FOOTPRINTS IN NEW YORK for just $15 when you reserve online ***
Madison Square is just 6.2 acres, but contains within its boundaries a fascinating cross-section of New York’s history, from the British-colonial era -- when it was a potter’s field -- to its designation as a military drilling ground on the 1811 street plan, to becoming a center of Gilded-Age high society. Who the heck was Roscoe Conkling? Why is Chester Arthur commemorated here? Why is the Flatiron Building so significant in the history of American architecture? All of these questions -- and many more -- will be answered during our perambulation around the park.
