Topic: Shaped by Immigrants: A History of Yorkville, Then and Now
Ms. Levy gives us an overview of the history of the Upper East Side, its architectural and cultural heritage and the vital role the FRIENDS have played in helping to shape it into the livable, vibrant and desirable part of our city. Her presentation draws from the study the FRIENDS undertook of the history of Yorkville that culminated in the 2018 publication of Shaped by Immigrants: A History of Yorkville.
