About the Event:
Join ADSNY and Bronx historian and expert, Sam Goodman, as he leads us on a stroll along the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. Together, we will discover the many Art Deco treasures that define the development of this special boulevard.
Highlights of the afternoon will include visits to numerous buildings, including Emory Roth’s only Bronx apartment house and the famous Fish Building. We will also walk to Jerome Avenue to explore two of the neighborhood’s most outstanding buildings, 1001 Jerome Avenue and the Park Plaza Apartments.
Goodman will offer the inside scoop of why this community developed as it did and why it is considered so unique.
ADSNY walking tours do fill quickly, so we encourage you to claim your space today.
Audio assistance devices will be provided for all attendees.
