|THE UPPER West Side|
me for a journey through 250 years of the amazing history and the inspiring
architecture of Manhattan's Upper West Side. We'll follow Lillian Russell
and Diamond Jim Brady as they peddle gold-plated bicycles along Riverside
Drive and Washington's army as they retreat from the British in 1776. We'll
visit one of the last forests of American Elms and the rock summit where
Poe composed The Raven. We'll remember the man who fixed the 1919 World
Series, the night Mae West was busted and the afternoon Two-Gun Crowley
shot it out with the cops. A walking tour of the birthplace of Hellman's
Mayonnaise and Humphrey Bogart with splendid churches and the city's grandest
apartment buildings along with bordellos and speakeasies, two great parks
and the mighty Hudson.
Our walk will end on the banks of the Hudson, under the stone arches of O'Neal's 79th Street Boat Basin Cafe , where we can lunch on the stone terrace, overlooking the river and the sailboats of the marina.
