Walking Tours

Experience Old New York at its best and meet some fellow local-history buffs on a weekend walking tour with Peter Salwen, licensed NYC Tour Guide and author of Upper West Side Story: A History and Guide.

Three tours are offered currently on a rotating basis:

Revolution in Manhattan: the Battle of Harlem Heights honors George Washington and his troops, who achieved one of their earliest victories against the British Crown troops in September 1776 in the woods and farmlands around what is now Morningside Heights.

The West Side and How It Got That Way.
