Jane's Walk 2023: Roosevelt Island: Where the Past Meets the Present and Future (5/7 @ 11 AM)
05/07/2023 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET


  • Free


Stretching back to 1637, we will explore the diverse history of the island and traverse the southern half of this former "haven" for hogs, and discuss its myriad changes over the years, both in name and in architecture.

Along the way, we'll visit the old and the new, including Blackwell House, the island's oldest structure circa 1796; the island's infamous Smallpox Hospital, NYC's only landmarked ruin; the Strecker Laboratory, the nation's first pathological and bacteriological research institution; FDR Four Freedoms Park and the FDR Hope Memorial; the Cornell Tech Campus; and the brand new Graduate Hotel that boasts a one-of-a-kind concierge desk comprised of remnants from the former NYC Lunatic Asylum, as well as some of the best views of Manhattan and Queens from its unique, rooftop vantage point in the middle of the East River.
