Join us on this exclusive walking tour of downtown Manhattan as we learn about how the Dutch colonial era has left its mark on the oldest part of NYC. While walking the circumference of New Amsterdam as it existed in 1664, we will gain insight into why it is much harder to navigate downtown Manhattan compared to the rest of NYC, above Houston Street.
Our guide, William Singer, AIA, is the Chief Plan Examiner for The City of New York Department of Buildings and an expert in the design and construction of large-scale public facilities. His major projects have included justice centers, transportation hubs, and cultural centers. Before joining the Department of Buildings he was a partner at Gruzen Samton, a NYC & Virginia-based architecture, planning, interior design and systems engineering firm. A Fulbright fellow (Slovenia, 1993-94), he holds a Master of Architecture degree from the School of Design at North Carolina State University, as well as a Master of Arts in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2004, Singer received a City of New York Arts Commission Excellence in Design for the renovation design of El Museo Del Barrio.
In case of rain, the event will be held one week later on August 29th.

Did you know that more than 1.5 million New Yorkers struggle to put food on their tables? Spend a Saturday with One To World and City Harvest to help correct this inequity.
City Harvest has been working since 1982 to collect excess food from donors around the city and redistribute it to community food programs in underserved communities. You’ll volunteer at Washington Heights Mobile Market to help distribute donated food to residents of Dyckman Houses and Dyckman Senior Center.
This is your chance to help make New York a better place to live, and to get to know the community that was recently featured in a major summer movie! To ensure social distancing, City Harvest programs are limited to only five people, so sign up today!
