latiron Building-1912Join HDC on a FREE tour of the Madison Square North Historic District. For such a tiny district, it possesses a rich and amusing history from some of the Gilded Age’s grandest hotels to the first commercial motion picture exhibition  to notorious music halls.  In addition to the obligatory Stanford White murder discussion, you will also learn about recent preservation successes and failures.

 

The tour will be approximately one hour followed by a cash-bar happy hour at Green Square Tavern!

 

Join us on August 9th at 5 p.m.!!
