Recording: Lobbies, Entrances, and Evocative Names: Marketing Apartments in 1910

Janes Walk

Led By Matthew Spady, Audubon Park Alliance

Did you miss this walk activity? A recording is available here!

Between 1908 and 1911, a group of twelve Beaux Arts apartment houses replaced most of suburban Audubon Park in upper Manhattan. Join historian and author Matthew Spady on this virtual walk through today’s Audubon Park Historic District, to learn how speculative developers marketed their new buildings to draw their solidly middle-class tenants uptown.


Online activity with headlines and some text in PowerPoint presentation, but no closed captioning.
