Culture Connect Featured Event
We will visit three of the prettiest and most historic spots in the city: Washington Square with its famous fountain and grand triumphal arch designed by Stanford White; the serene, seven-acre Madison Square, which sits amid such architectural gems as the Flatiron Building and the Metropolitan Life Insurance building; and Union Square with its famous equestrian statue of George Washington and the lively Greenmarket.
The tour will focus on the history, art and architecture of this part of the city that was central to the social, cultural and business life of 19th century New York.
Tour guide Anne Bolin, Ph.D. is a specialist in 19th century art and culture, and currently a professor of Art History at Sacred Heart University.
