Join us for a journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area’, home to Astors, Vanderbilts, Delanos – and the Tredwells, who lived in the Merchant’s House. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Tredwells’ home evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial center. Visit important 19th-century landmark buildings on this tour through 21st century NoHo.
And what’s a plunge into the past without a little scandal? On the bustling Astor Place, imagine the drama of events that led to the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history. And visit the site of the notorious 1857 Bond Street murder of Harvey Burdell, one of the City’s still unsolved crimes!
The tour begins promptly, outside the Merchant's House Museum.
$15; Free for Merchant's House Museum Members. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended.
