Inwood-Marble Hill – Forgotten Tour #146

July 14 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Inwood-Marble Hill Tour

Explore the upper reaches of Manhattan in this tour that encompasses the recently restored Swindler’s Cove, a Revolutionary-era farmhouse, the location where Peter Minuit reportedly “purchased” Manhattan from the Lenape Indians, a saltwater pool, and habitable caves in Inwood Hill Park. Finish with a walk across the Broadway Bridge and see Manhattan’s only mainland outpost.

WHEN: Sunday, July 14; meet at 12 noon; tour begins shortly after

WHERE: Meet at pedestrian plaza at Nagle and Hillside Avenues at the Dyckman Street #1 train station.

Since the MTA will probably not be running the #1 train north of 96th Street on weekends, take the A train to Dyckman Street and walk 4 blocks east to Nagle and Hillside Avenues at the Dyckman Street #1 station. The MTA is also providing a shuttle bus along Dyckman.

HOW MUCH: $20; $15 for Greater Astoria Historical Society members

HOW LONG: approximately 3 hours

TERRAIN: Hilly in spots! Be prepared. Rain or shine, within reason. Steady heavy rain or storms will postpone. We walk in light rain or showers.

RSVP: info@astorialic.org or kevinjudewalsh@gmail.com.
