How Audubon Park Disrupted Manhattan’s Grid

Janes Walk

Led By Matthew Spady, Audubon Park Alliance, Audubon Park Alliance

The distinctive footprint that disrupts Manhattan’s grid west of Broadway between 155th and 158th Streets — Audubon Park — did not come about by accident or from the demands of local topography, but rather from careful planning by well-connected property owners. Come along on a leisurely walk through Audubon Park’s architecture gems and learn about the families who guided the area’s rapid evolution from suburb to city at the turn of the 20th century.
