Explore New York City's roots and examine the historical interplay of geography, immigration, commerce, architecture, and personalities that makes the city the amazing place it is today. Examine the period after the Revolutionary War until World War I and trace the roots of New York's economic prosperity and revolutionary improvements in daily life. Learn about Washington Square (the first suburb), the hidden charms of Chelsea and Hell's Kitchen, and how the Irish, Jewish, and Italian experiences in New York differed from one other. These topics and more are covered in four exceptional walking tours and four lively illustrated talks. CEU: 2.0.
