Every part of New York City has a unique character, history and flavor, which can often be overlooked in some neighborhoods. This summer, the Washington Heights Business Improvement District is calling attention to the historic, cultural and food scenes of uptown Manhattan. One of the District’s initiative is a brand new food festival, Taste of Uptown, sponsored by Pernod Ricard and Neighborhood 360. The free festival will showcase the diverse cuisine of over fifteen local restaurants and reveal the culinary treasures uptown neighborhoods have to offer to those who may not think of making the journey north.
The Washington Height Business Improvement District has put together an exciting afternoon especially for Untapped Cities Insiders crafted to display the history and modern day cultures of uptown. Before indulging in the delicacies of the surrounding area, Insiders will get to go on a free docent led tour of the historic Dyckman Farmhouse, one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan. Built in 1784, the farmhouse reveals what life was like in rural Manhattan through the story of the Dyckman family. Not a member yet?
