Asylum Lane: Divisions and Connections in Morningside Heights

Janes Walk

Led By Dan McSweeney, Planning Committee Member, West 111th Street Block Association

The West 111th Street Block Association has developed a walking tour of our street, between Riverside Drive and Amsterdam Avenue. This two-block stretch of Morningside Heights offers insights on the area’s history and culture. By highlighting the role of a forgotten pathway that branched off the Bloomingdale Road at 111th Street, we explore the connections and divisions that have defined our neighborhood for centuries.

We have developed captioned slides and video to present our walk.
