How Audubon Park Disrupted Manhattan’s Grid

Thursday, June 16 at 6:00PM

The distinctive footprint that disrupts Manhattan’s grid west of Broadway between 155th and 158th Streets—the Audubon Park Historic District—did not come about by accident or from the demands of local topography. It unfolded from careful planning and alliances among like-minded property owners, whose social and political connections ensured that when progress swept up Manhattan’s west side, they would benefit. Take a leisurely walk with local historian Matthew Spady through the architectural gems in today’s Audubon Park Historic district and the proposed expansion area and learn about the Grinnell family, who controlled this neighborhood’s rapid evolution from suburb to city at the turn of the twentieth century.
