Morningside Heights is characterized by architecturally-unified apartment buildings and row houses and is home to the largest concentration of institutions in the city. The neighborhood is situated between Riverside Park and Morningside Park, two scenic landmarks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The Morningside Heights Historic District Committee is working towards city designation of this elegant neighborhood developed mainly between 1900 and 1915. Andrew Scott Dolkart will examine the diverse architecture of the neighborhood and the tour will also feature a short discussion of current preservation efforts with a representative from the Morningside Heights Historic District Committee.
This walking tour is led by Andrew Scott Dolkart, architectural historian and author of “Morningside Heights: A History of It’s Architecture & Development.” Fee $10, $5 for Friends of HDC.
