Forgotten Tour #151: Westchester Square, The Bronx

Visit the heart of what used to be the county seat of Westchester County before it became the Bronx, and see ancient cemeteries, libraries and a churchyard featuring remains of colonial settlers. Then we’ll walk through Unionport to see some historic structures — some of which have hidden secrets of the area’s past in plain sight — and finish with a look at Parkchester and its unique terra cotta work.
