Discover how New York City’s fascinating past illuminates its vibrant life today. From natural New York—rocks, trees, animals, and Indians—to the European arrival and the creation of a new nation, this course includes how Lower Manhattan neighborhoods developed, how buildings embody a moment of history, and what created the street patterns of Greenwich Village. Four illustrated lectures and four walking tours— Financial District, the West Village, the Five Points, and the East Village.
