this three-hour tour we'll visit SoHo's treasure, the largest surviving
collection of cast iron architecture anywhere. We'll start in NoLita, exploring
the first St. Patricks Cathedral and its fortified cemetery, visiting New
York's first pizza oven and calling on Emma Goldman, the celebrated radical
publisher of the 1910's. We'll visit some unusual art galleries (and maybe
an artist's studio or two) and we'll find the well where Elma Sands, the
"Ghost of Spring Street", was drowned in 1799. Our itinerary will
also include the store where Mrs. Lincoln shopped for White House China,
an intact nineteenth century working man's saloon and the notorious Civil
War-period red-light district along Mercer and Green Streets. We'll finish
just in time for a late lunch at any of a number of wonderful nearby restaurants.
