Discover the interplay between the city's rapid growth, architectural styles and materials, and concern for the quality of life offered to its diverse residents. Learn what a stream and statue have to do with the design of Greenwich Village, and how 19th century New York became the world’s second largest city. Find out about the creative individuals who gave Gramercy Park its cache, and the many roles played by the city in the American Civil War. These are among the topics discussed in four walking tours and four lively Power Point illustrated talks.
