Magnificent Gilded Age Mansions of Riverside Drive Walking Tour

For a brief time in the early 20th century, Riverside Drive rivaled Fifth Avenue for its stretch of opulent mansions. With the passage of time and the rise of luxury apartment living, many of these mansions were lost, but we have the chance to once again enter that bygone era with the help of Gilded Age historian Esther Crain (of “Ephemeral New York” fame). An amazing storyteller, Ms. Crain will help us imagine the many grand homes that enjoyed spectacular views of the Hudson River and discover rich period details of the very special buildings that, incredibly, remain. Come walk along the park, under the spectacular Hudson sunset light, and get a glimpse of life during this unparalleled period on the Upper West Side.
