This early evening walk celebrates sites that border Fifth Avenue, both within leafy Central Park and inside the Upper East Side Historic District.
Led by architectural historian Matt Postal, we’ll amble east and west, discussing the history of our beloved park and the development of the stately blocks that border it. From Gothic Revival to mid-20th century Modern, we’ll view a varied selection of structures that illustrate and exemplify specific eras and styles, including such notable works as the Arsenal, the Ernesto & Edith Fabbri Mansion, Temple Emanu-el, and the recently-restored 72nd Street Playground. This walk, will follow East Meets West: CPWow!, an accompanying walk hosted by LANDMARK WEST!. At 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 12th, join Sean Khorsandi of LW! to take a stroll down Central Park West to learn about its parallel development on the West Side.
