Explore Pride beyond Stonewall and Greenwich Village! Guides from the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project will make their way uptown for a special Upper West Side in-person walking tour, from Central Park to Riverside Park. Beginning at the Abraham Lincoln statue in front of the New-York Historical Society, this walk will visit historic sites such as the residences of writer and civil rights activist James Baldwin and the Cuban-born 1950s gay rights activist Tony Segura; the Ansonia, which once housed the legendary Continental Baths; and The Dakota, once home to composer Leonard Bernstein, among others, and a prime example of the neighborhood’s long-standing connection to the performing arts. The tour will end at the Eleanor Roosevelt Monument in Riverside Park, at 72nd Street.
The tour will last approximately 1 ½ hours and will take place rain or shine.
