[In-person tour] Once home to bucolic farmland, riverfront Yorkville was dotted with clapboard farmhouses and country estates, and later transformed into an industrial hub of factories by the turn of the 20th century. Tenements and ethnic missions sprung up as the neighborhood became an enclave for many immigrant groups in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (including Irish, Germans, Hungarians, and Czechs) leaving the neighborhood rich in cultural heritage. By the 1930s, East End Avenue was among the toniest of apartment districts designed by high society architects. Stroll through this constantly developing neighborhood on Manhattan's Upper East Side with James Russiello to view these patterns of development.Event Registration is closed.
