Walking Tour of 19th Century NoHo: A Century of Change

Sunday, November 8, 2020

12:30 p.m.1:30 p.m.

This event repeats on the 2nd Sunday of every month between 9/13/2020 and 11/8/2020.

Join us for a socially-distanced journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area,’ home to wealthy merchant families like the Tredwells. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Merchant’s House evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial and cultural center during the 19th century.

Stops include Colonnade Row, home to the Astors, Delanos, and Vanderbilts; the Astor Library, now the Public Theater; Tompkins Market, where the Tredwells bought their food; and 31 Bond Street, the site of the gruesome (and still unsolved!) 1857 murder of Dr. Harvey Burdell, a sure sign of a changing neighborhood.

The tour lasts 1 hour and begins outside the Merchant's House Museum.

For your safety: Capacity strictly limited to 6 participants; masks are required. If you have a cough, fever, or other symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. We are happy to transfer your tickets to a future tour.
