A guided walking tour of Central Park
Join the Women’s Auxiliary of Temple Emanu-El for a walking tour highlighting just a few parts of the north end of Central Park. The tour will begin at the Conservatory Garden and then continue to the historic Fort Landscape and conclude in the Ravine in the North Woods.
While our timing will fortuitously allow us to enjoy the beauty of the garden in its peak spring bloom, this tour will focus more on the history of this part of the park, going back to before the Revolutionary War and including some recently uncovered aspects of Jewish life in New York City that pre-date the existence of the park.
Our tour guide, Stanley Zucker, has had a life-long interest and love of Central Park and over the past 15 or so years, has made about a dozen films about the park for the Central Park Conservancy. Stanley has a deep well of knowledge about Central park… And the city.
We will meet at the Vanderbilt Gate located at 5th Avenue and E. 105th at 10:15 a.m. Tour starts promptly at 10:30 a.m.
