The Upper East Side: Wealth, Health, Privilege, New Developments - and "Progress"
A New Spring Walk - soon!

This winter is finally ending, and we are beginning to see what's been gestating for some time within this neighborhood since our last stroll more than 5 years ago: shades of Big City Development!

Please be advised that The Street Teacher - Bill - has postponed his first spring walk this April 20 at 10:00.  RAIN IS COMING!

Because of the upcoming rain on this Saturday, April 20, our walk is canceled.

When and Where
DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED - 10:00am to 12:30pm, please meet at Beanoccios @ 1431 York Avenue, between E.75th St. and E. 76th St. There are benches and coffee there. 

Cost$35 per person  

We shall walk this neighborhood to discover answers to questions like: 
a. Just where was my father's second office - and who lives there now.
b. Who were the original residents of the Upper East Side - or our "Yorkville" and "Lenox Hill" neighborhoods - and just how different were they from each other, and from us today?
c. When did "the government"  care about our health? Who else did - and does today?
d. Who were those literary residents who wrote about our neighborhood, and what were those books?

Questions? For more information: Email: [email protected]  Or call or text: 917-921-9273

Here's the corner of E. 78TH St. and Lexington Avenue 10 years ago ...

From our vantage point on the new bridge over the FDR Drive (see right) we can see the Junior League building of years ago - built for young women new to the city. 




         













... and you'll be interested to hear how this building replaced it!

We begin our walk - after meeting at Beanocchio's - on this new bridge over the FDR Drive - and we'll discover the history of this neighborhood: from Yorkville to Lenox Hill.
