Untapped Cities is excited to announce our Jane’s Walk this Sunday, May 5th from 3-5 pm led by MAS tour guide and Untapped Cities contributor, Matico Josephson. Matico is an architectural historian and will be taking us through Woodside, Queens.
Description: Since its consolidation into the City of New York in 1898 the neighborhood of Woodside, at the intersection of major road and rail networks, has been one of the most important crossroads in Queens. Explore the neighborhood’s boundaries and focal points with Woodside resident and architectural historian Matico Josephson. We will consider the neighborhood’s geographical advantages and disadvantages, the effects of the recent rezoning, and its distinctive ethnic, cultural, and linguistic breakdown. The our conversation will range from architecture to urban utopias, distopias, and how we coexist in our pluralistic cities. Stops may be made at select neighborhood eateries, and recommendations will certainly be given for nearby Irish, Indian, Thai, Turkish, Korean, Himalayan, Peruvian and Lebanese restaurants for dinner.
Meeting and Ending Place: In front of Lucid Cafe, located at 59-02 Woodside Avenue at 59th Street just under elevated #7 train, Queens. More information here.
