Tour of NoHo during Seabury Tredwell's era given by a private guide from the Merchant's House Museum.
Walking Tour of 19th Century NoHo: Glamour & Greed, Money & Murder.
Join us for a journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area,’ home to Astors, Vanderbilts, Delanos — and the Tredwells, who lived in the Merchant’s House. You’ll walk the footsteps of these wealthy mercantile families whose elegant Federal mansions once lined the tranquil cobblestone streets.
Our tour passes by iconic landmarks such as the imposing Colonnade Row, the Public Theater (in 1854 the City’s first public library), and The Cooper Union, site of impassioned political speeches from Lincoln to Obama. On the bustling Astor Place, we’ll imagine the drama of events that led to the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history. And we’ll visit the site of the scandalous 1857 Bond Street murder of Harvey Burdell, one of the City’s still unsolved crimes.
Price will be $15.00 pp or $10.00 for students and seniors.
