Upper West Side: History, Development, and Delicious Food

Janes Walk

Led By Jeremy and Barbara Willinger

This 1 mile walk takes participants down Broadway for an illuminating discovery of beaux-arts buildings (The Belnord, Astor Court, The Apthorp, Greystone Hotel) historic food stores (Murray’s, Zabars, Barney Greengrass- slight detour) and recent real estate developments shaping the area, both current and planned. The walk will concentrate on the vibrancy, tradition and authenticity of this storied community. Bring a camera and wear comfy shoes.
