Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side has been home to many of New York’s most interesting residents from the Revolutionary era through the Gilded Age. Ranging from philanthropists to architects to beer barons, these individuals sought out extravagant homes along Riverside Drive that would capitalize on the beauty of Riverside Park and the Hudson River. Join us for a guided walk along Riverside Drive that highlights the extraordinary stories of people of a bygone era. See the mansions that remain and hear about the mansions that have been lost over time.
