Rob Snyder, author of the book Crossing Broadway, Washington Heights and the Promise of New York City, and Professor of Journalism and American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark, leads a walking tour and panel discussion in the northern Manhattan neighborhood once known as “Frankfurt on the Hudson” for its large population of German-Jewish refugees. Eight decades later, the neighborhood is still a vibrant home for new immigrant communities.
This tour will begin near the site of the former Audubon Ballroom and progress north approximately 2 miles to Fort Tryon Park, where the tour will end.
Please note that tickets for this event will go on sale on April 1st.
