Courses – Fall 2022 / History / NYC NEIGHBORHOODS

Coordinators: Paul Golomb, Sandra Abramson

New York City is a tapestry. It is a 400-year development entailing subsequent waves of immigration and architectural styles. This course focuses in each session on a definitive neighborhood, describing its history, architectural and topographic features, significant landmarks, course of development and its contribution to the City as a whole.

Where possible, walking tours will be scheduled.
