Tomorrow at noon, Untapped New York tour guide Bill Shaffer will take us on a live virtual tour of Riverside Park from 72nd Street and Riverside Drive up to 90th Street. Along the way, take a look at some notable features in Riverside Park and the architectural highlights of Riverside Drive.

You’ll see the site of the most lavish former mansion on Riverside Drive, the home of George and Ira Gershwin, a memorial to a Gilded Age celebrity scandal, Babe Ruth’s last home, the first Holocaust Memorial in New York City and much more. In addition, discover where Edgar Allan Poe went to clear his mind and conceive of The Raven, one of the first tri-level traffic engineering feats in New York City, the place where Liz lemon lived, and the last free-standing mansion on this section of Riverside Drive.

This live talk is organized for Untapped New York Insiders — get two months free with code STAYHOME (or three months free with a yearly plan). A video of the talk will also be made available to all our Insiders afterwards in the Virtual Content section of our website.
