West Chelsea, The Old & New

With James Russiello

[In-person tour] Join preservationist and architecture historian James Russiello to explore the complex identity of West Chelsea from rural farmland to preserved districts of Italianate row houses, Gothic religious institutions, Art Deco apartments, galleries, and modern high-style contemporary buildings.

In-person tours are limited to 25 attendees, last approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours, and are held outdoors. Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore recommend that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status. Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation. Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.

Registration is now closed.
