Duane and Reade (and Thomas)

The Entirety of Three Streets in One Tour

With Francis Morrone

We will walk the entirety of these three downtown streets. Duane and Reade run from Centre Street to Greenwich Street, Thomas (which was once part of Pearl Street), the shortest, from Broadway to Hudson Street. Though they are short, the three streets pack an amazing amount of New York City history and great architecture. 8 Thomas Street, 280 Broadway, 60 Hudson Street, and Duane Park are but a few of the topics to be addressed, along with the history of a certain drugstore chain.
