About The Event
Named for Alexander Hamilton, you will be amazed at the grandeur and elegance of Hamilton Heights and you will marvel at the hidden treasures of Sugar Hill and its magnificent residential architecture that spans townhouses, apartment buildings and mansions, one of which is where George Washington first dined with his cabinet. There's plenty of vibrant street art to go around too along with the striking gothic buildings of the City College campus. In this virtual tour Hank Orenstein, Licensed NYC Sightseeing Guide, will share the history of this special part of Manhattan and take us to some of his favorite places that includes an African-Jewish restaurant, community gardens, and a secret art gallery. This event is co-sponsored with The Broadway Mall Association, a non-profit organization, works in partnership with community residents, other non-profit groups and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to beautify and maintain the malls of Broadway, and to restore the public glory of New York City’s oldest and most traveled thoroughfare, from the Upper West Side, through Harlem to Washington Heights. In addition to upgrading the malls along Broadway, BMA provides winter lighting and public art exhibitions.
