September NYC Events + Top 11 NYC Corona Culture (09/14)

Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.
We made it as easy as 1-2-3.

Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being.
Stay Safe.

For September we are going to try a different format – “Top 10 Corona Culture” – updated info and video especially suited to these difficult times or NYC related visual info (Instagram and YouTube) or all the NYC news you need to start your day.

Lower Manhattan – Did you know?

New York City is a city of neighborhoods and no neighborhood has more spectacular sights, nor more important links to American history then Lower Manhattan.

The Gotham Center for New York City History, a research and public education institution, publishes “Gotham” a blog that is endlessly fascinating for scholars (and non-scholars alike) of New York City history. I am most interested in those essays that cover Lower Manhattan. Here are three more that I find especially compelling (i):

The Carleton Commission and Evidence of Arson in the Great New York Fire of 1776 — The Gotham Center for New York City History

The Lawyer and the Fox: A Tale of Tricks and Treachery in New Amsterdam — The Gotham Center for New York City History

Notes on Manhattan Bricks
