Summary

[In-person tour] The Upper East Side boasts the first private women's social club in New York, the first public women's college in the nation, and the first Black working women's settlement house in the city. Since the 19th century, the neighborhood has been home to clubs, schools, residences, political institutions, and professional associations catering exclusively to women. The women who founded, joined, lived, worked and learned in these institutions used them to shape their lives, their city, and their nation. On this walking tour, honoring Women's Equality Day, and led by historian Lucie Levine, we will dive into the architectural and social history of these establishments, and delve into more than 100 years of local women's history through the spaces they made their own.
