High atop Manhattan Island, the Cloisters house the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection of art and architecture from medieval Europe. Best known for the beautiful tapestries on display, the Cloisters also offer architectural installations and fantastic views of the Hudson River. Join Justin for this special tour of this remarkable institution.
Located on four acres overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park (previously designed by Frederick Law Olmsted as a summer estate), the building incorporates elements from five medieval French cloisters – quadrangles enclosed by a roofed or vaulted passageway, or arcade – and from other monastic sites in southern France. Three of the cloisters reconstructed at the branch museum feature gardens planted according to horticultural information found in medieval treatises and poetry, garden documents and herbals, and medieval works of art, such as tapestries, stained-glass windows, and column capitals. Approximately five thousand works of art from medieval Europe, dating from about A.D. 800 with particular emphasis on the twelfth through fifteenth century, are exhibited in this unique and sympathetic context.
In celebration of the Christmas holidays, the Cloisters will also be decorated with appropriate Medieval ornamentation for the season. Weather permitting, we’ll stroll Fort Tryon Park, the site of an American Revolutionary fort and later the summer estate of newspaper publisher James Gordon Bennett. Ask Justin about the owl!
FREE Book-Signing with Dr. Gerard Wolfe:
Join Gerard Wolfe, the founder of the Wolfe Walkers, for this very special book-signing event!
It has often been said that nowhere in the United States can one find a greater collection of magnificent and historic synagogues than on New York's Lower East Side. As the ultimate destination for millions of immigrant eastern European Jews during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it became the new homeland and hoped-for goldene medinah (promised land) for immigrants fleeing persecution, poverty, and oppression, while struggling to live a new and productive life. Yet to many visitors and students today these synagogues are shrouded in mystery, as documentary information on them tends to be dispersed and difficult to find.
With The Synagogues of New York's Lower East Side, Gerard R. Wolfe fills that void, giving readers unparalleled access to the story of how the Jewish community took root on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Using archival photographs taken by Jo Renée Fine and contemporary shots taken by Norman Borden alongside his text, Wolfe focuses on the synagogues built or acquired by eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants during the great era of mass immigration, painting vivid portraits of the individual congregations and the new and vital culture that was emerging. For many, the Lower East Side became the portal to America and the stepping-stone to a new and better life. Today, the synagogues in which these immigrants worshiped remain as a poignant visual reminder of what had become the largest Jewish community in the world.
Originally published in 1978, The Synagogues of New York's Lower East Side became the authoritative study of the subject. Now completely revised and updated, the book incorporates new text, photographs, and maps, along with an invaluable glossary. Published by Fordham University Press, Wolfe's book is an essential and accessible source for those who want to understand the varied and rich history of New York's Lower East Side and its Jewish population. Its readable and illuminating view into the diversity of synagogues – large and small, past and present – and their people makes this book ideal for teachers, students, museum educators, and general readers as well.

TOUR CLOSED Ferry & Bus Tour: Join Justin at Manhattan’s Staten Island Ferry Terminal to begin this discovery tour of the new Freshkills Park! In Staten Island, we’ll meet a special bus and a member of the New York City Parks Department who will take us on this very unusual adventure. At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. James Corner of Field Operations, the same firm that created the stunning landscape designs for the High Line, produced the master plan to guide the long-term development of Freshkills Park.
The full build–out will continue in phases for the next 30 years, with development over the next several years focused on providing public access to the interior of the site and showcasing its unusual combination of natural and engineered beauty. While nearly 45 percent of the site was once used for landfill, the remainder of the site is currently composed of wetlands, open waterways, and unfilled lowland areas. The tops of the landfill mounds themselves offer spectacular vistas of the expansive site, as well as views of Lower Manhattan.
When completed the 2,200 acres of open space will host restored maritime forests, dry prairies with chestnut trees, and swampland that will be home to many species of marine animals and birds. Very few urban parks compare in size to what Fresh Kills will become. The park will support a wide range of activities from mountain biking and kayaking to cross country skiing and all manner of field sports.
Freshkills Park is a fascinating and inspiring project that weaves together a series of unusual issues and disciplines: ecology, landfill infrastructure, urban planning and landscape architecture, public art, land reclamation, sustainability, renewable energy, and New York City history. This will undoubtedly prove to be an informative and eye-opening tour!
TOUR IS LIMITED TO 23 PARTICIPANTS. Please read attached WW brochure for additional information.
Few are aware of the role of African Americans in the history of Lower Manhattan. Even fewer are aware that in 1612, a freeman of African and Portuguese descent, Joao “Jan” Rodrigues, became the first non-native settler on the island of Manhattan. In 1626, the later Dutch settlers brought Africans to New Amsterdam as slaves. By 1711, roughly 1/6 of New York’s residents were black – most enslaved and some free. During the tour, we’ll visit such noted sites as New York’s slave market, the site of the slave revolt of 1712, the notorious “Five Points” district, Abolitionist-related sites, the New York African Free School, the site of African Society for Mutual Relief and the site of Freedom’s Journal, the first African American owned and operated newspaper in the nation.
In addition, from the 1690s until the 1790s, both free and enslaved Africans were interred in a burial ground in Lower Manhattan, beyond the boundaries of New Amsterdam. Built over by development, the cemetery was officially “rediscovered” in 1991. Our tour will include a visit to the new African Burial Ground Memorial – dedicated to those who are buried in this hallowed ground.
During the tour, we’ll encounter such people as Joseph François Mangin, designer of New York’s City Hall and the Venerable Pierre Toussaint – a candidate for Roman Catholic sainthood. We’ll address and visit noted religious sites associated with the black community: John Street Methodist Church, St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, Mother AME Zion, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, and the Abyssinian Baptist Church. We’ll also discover overlooked heroes and heroines. Learn of Elizabeth Jennings who, in 1854, successfully sued to eliminate racial discrimination for New York’s public transit. Discover Dr. James McCune Smith, the first licensed African American doctor in the country. Learn of the New York connections for Frederick Douglass, the most famous African American of the 19th century – often called the “father of the Civil Rights movement.”
Join Justin for a tour of the oldest house in Manhattan: Harlem’s Morris-Jumel Mansion. This splendid house was built in 1765, eleven years before the American Revolution, by British Colonel Roger Morris and his American wife, Mary Philipse. The next tenant of the house was General George Washington, who planned the Battle of Harlem Heights in this home. The later owner of the house, Madame Eliza Jumel, married Aaron Burr here in 1833. (Charles Dickens eternally memorialized a different “life moment” of Eliza Jumel in his novel, Great Expectations.)
We will also view nearby Sylvan Terrace, with its charming double-row of wooden 19th century workers’ houses. This intimate cobblestone street of humble homes is one of New York’s most beloved “secrets.”
Then, from the top of Harlem Heights, we’ll stroll about eight blocks to the Hispanic Society of America to view its world-renowned paintings by Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya, El Greco, and an impressive array of other noted Spanish painters. This is a rare collection of internationally beloved art treasures installed around a beautiful Spanish patio.
Celebrate Mother’s Day or just an exciting Sunday with Justin and the Wolfe Walkers on this exhilarating trek to Connecticut! Our first stop will be to the Mark Twain House, a National Historic Landmark in Hartford, Connecticut. After our tour, a specially catered “family style” luncheon has been arranged at the Mark Twain Museum.
Then, we’ll travel to Hill-Stead, a unique country estate designed in conjunction with McKim, Mead & White and Beatrix Farrand. Today, 19 of the rooms of the house are open to visitors. Noted for its Impressionist Art collection, the house is extensively furnished and includes paintings, prints, objets d'art, and fine furniture and rugs. Highlights of the collection include major paintings by Eugène Carrière, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet and James McNeill Whistler.
Join Justin Ferate as we tour a remarkable jewel of an exhibition at the Museum of Biblical Art (MOBIA). Justin will address the works of the renowned and versatile Art Deco muralist and mosaicist Hildreth Meière (1892-1961) in the exhibition Walls Speak: The Narrative Art of Hildreth Meière. Among the works of the artist we have included on previous trips have been the mosaics of Temple Emanu-El, the interiors of St. Bartholomew’s Church on Park Avenue, and the enameled artistic roundels on the exterior of Radio City Music Hall.
An early proponent of Art Deco, Hildreth Meière drew inspiration from the medieval mosaics of Ravenna and the Renaissance murals of Florence, bringing streamlined contemporary style to traditional motifs. Over her career Meière completed over 100 projects, leaving her mark on New York City’s vast landscape, including the 1939 New York World’s Fair, Radio City Music Hall, the truly striking Red Mosaic Banking Room at One Wall Street, and Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.
After our visit to the exhibition, we’ll take a brief tour of the surrounding neighborhood viewing some of the great landmarks.
TOUR LIMITED TO 30 PEOPLE. REGISTER NOW!
Welcome in the Holidays! Join Justin Ferate as we visit the Bridgemarket, with its soaring, awe-inspiring Guastavino tile vaults, under the newly named Edward I. Koch Bridge (formerly known as the Queensboro or “Feeling Groovy!”). Discover the handsome renovations by architect Hugh Hardy. Then, rediscover Sutton Place, an almost secret enclave of wealth and elegance along the East River. In the early 1920s, the neighborhood was “gentrified” by a group of women led by Elsie DeWolfe – said by some to be America’s first woman interior decorator – along with her friends Anne Morgan and Anne Vanderbilt.
For the finale, we’ll discover one of the seven oldest buildings in Manhattan and one of New York City’s hidden treasures! We’ll step back in time and take a candlelight tour of the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum, with eight fully furnished period rooms. Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for Abigail Adams Smith and her husband and converted into a hotel in 1826, the charming, diminutive structure, crafted of local fieldstone, transports the visitor back to the era of the Mount Vernon Hotel – once a country escape for New Yorkers living in the crowded city at the southern tip of Manhattan, below 14th Street.
To welcome in the holiday season, we’ll partake in a specially created festival: a tour of the Mt. Vernon Hotel by the warm glow of candlelight. We’ll learn more about the history of modern Christmas traditions and partake of light refreshments.
From the Colonial era to the 21st century, Yorkville is replete with a remarkable array of impressive cultural and architectural landmarks. Join noted Tour Leader Justin Ferate as we discover some of this neighborhood’s delightful treasures.
Discover the history of Carl Schurz Park and indulge yourself in majestic river views. Learn of the summer mansions that once dotted the East River waterfront, including “The Mount,” the home of Edith Wharton’s grandfather, Major General Ebenezer Stevens. View “artistic” 19th century cottages, reminiscent of London’s chic Chelsea district and an 18th century former New York City Parks Department storage shed – now referred to as “Gracie Mansion.”
Discover one of New York’s great ecclesiastical treasures – an entire church complex built by one woman – Serena Rhinelander. Built to accommodate the poor of the neighborhood, the church is reminiscent of the châteaux of the Loire River Valley and is ornamented by such world-renowned artists as Vienna’s Karl Bitter and London’s Henry Holiday.
Over the course of the tour, we’ll see great mansions, a legendary literary landmark, a former orphanage, public art by one of the most beloved 20th century New York artists, and an iconic 20th century architectural landmark. We’ll even stop at Glaser’s Bake Shop for what some critics and connoisseurs call, “the best black and white cookie in New York!”
The community of Stapleton Heights, Staten Island is noted for both its remarkable 19th century architecture and its impressive vistas of Upper New York Bay. In previous generations, the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare, St. Paul's Avenue, was nicknamed “Mud Lane” and comprises the core of what is now a New York City Landmark District. The neighborhood streets were laid out in 1829-1830 by landowner Caleb T. Ward, whose spectacular Greek Revival mansion sits atop the neighborhood with its impressive prospects of the New York harbor. Considered to be the finest Greek Revival mansion in New York City, this privately owned home was built by Seth Geer, who also built La Grange Terrace (Colonnade Row) in Manhattan. The house boasts of an impressive two-story colonnaded portico.
During the course of the tour, we’ll discover an array of 19th century architecture: Greek Revival, Second French Empire, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and Craftsman – among others. We’ll see several impressive religious and public buildings
One of the homes was a rather extraordinary (if not extravagant) wedding present for 21-year-old Annie Bechtel — built in 1888 by Stapleton’s beer baron George Bechtel, who was said to be the richest man on Staten Island. We hope to visit the interior of this remarkable home.
Annie Bechtel’s bridal home included virtually every detail of Victorian domestic architecture — hipped roofs, gables, fish-scale shingles, chimneys, bay windows, dormer windows — even a turret. Garlanding the exterior were a series of porches and balconies. Chestnut and oak paneling covers nearly every available inch of wall space in the public rooms. The house boasts of two-dozen imported stained-glass windows — courtesy of the glass factory owned by Annie’s fiancé, Leonard Weiderer. These memorable windows explode with stars, sunbursts, crescent moons and floral designs pricked in luminous primary colors.
Special note will be made of the recent NYC Landmark, the Mary and David Burgher House at 63 William Street — a fine surviving example of a vernacular Greek Revival-style residence, built circa 1844.
We’ll end the tour of Stapleton at the private home of Jacqueline Goossens, which she describes as being "decorated" in “New York Bohemian style” — with lots of found objects and self-made art. Jacqueline has graciously invited the tour members for beverages to accompany their “brown bag” lunches at her home at the end the tour. The S78 bus is nearby on Van Duzer Street for a convenient return trip to the Staten Island Ferry.
Lunch: Bring a “brown bag” lunch and beverage for trip.
Note: The terrain is hilly, so dress appropriately.
Staten Island was once a secret hideaway for the elite of New York and a chic summer resort for residents of the American South. Join with our noted historian and tour leader Justin Ferate and discover some of the delights of this remarkable, but little known island in New York City.
During this all-day tour, we’ll discover sweeping waterfront vistas, elegant churches, handsome Victorian mansions, views of the New York Harbor, a memorable “storybook cottage,” and much, much more.
Learn of famous residents of Staten Island which have included Cornelius Vanderbilt, once America’s wealthiest man; noted author, Henry James; Central Park designer, Frederick Law Olmsted; the creator of modern Italy, Giuseppe Garibaldi; and one of America’s first women photographers, Alice Austen.
Among the other sites will be the former Sailors’ Snug Harbor – a remarkable 19th century complex of Greek Revival temple-like buildings, built by Robert Richard Randall as a retirement home for “aged and decrepit sailors.”
One of the very special delights of the day will be a tour of the noted Chinese Scholar’s Garden – the first in the United States. This one-acre garden is a superbly crafted example of Ming design and houses a collection of 18th and 19th century Chinese furniture. It is set in a Chinese landscape of flowering trees and bamboo, along with a variety of flora native to China.
Luncheon (included) will be at R. H. Tugs, a waterfront restaurant near Snug Harbor. The meal will consist of a house salad, one of three entrées, vegetable, fresh apple crisp, plus unlimited soda and coffee. Be certain to make your entrée selection when you register!
We’ll also take a guided tour of the notable Jacques Marchais Tibetan Museum, reminiscent of a stone Tibetan monastery, high on the steep hills of Staten Island. The Museum continually displays highlights from its permanent collection, formed during the early 1920s through the late 1940s, including sculptures, thangka paintings, ritual artifacts, musical instruments and historic photographs of Tibet.
We will also include a visit to Postcards – perhaps the most haunting of the World Trade Center memorials – designed by artist Masayuki Sono to represent postcards that also converge to create a shrine to those who were lost. Powerful in its simplicity!
FEE: $ 65 [Includes all site admissions, luncheon, and the bus for the afternoon bus tour]
TOUR SOLD OUT. NO WALK-UPS PLEASE.
Join Justin Ferate as we travel the length of Staten Island to discover vestiges of the island’s rich past. Meet at the Manhattan Terminal of the Staten Island Ferry and travel across New York's Harbor, on an historic ferry journey initiated by a young Staten Islander, one Cornelius Van Der Bilt.
Once on Staten Island, we'll travel overland on the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (now operated by the MTA) to the end of the line and the southernmost town in New York State: Tottenville — once the major New York ferry connection for Perth Amboy, New Jersey. The streets of Tottenville are still replete with remarkable remnants of the town’s commercial and maritime past. We'll view grand sea captains’ mansions as well as romantic Victorian country villas. Among the handsome public buildings, there is even a library by Carrère & Hastings, architects of the New York Public Library.
We'll also make a special trip to view the Conference House, a 1680's stone house — overlooking the waterfront and built by British naval officer, Captain Christopher Billop. During the American Revolution, at an unsuccessful peace conference here, the British government proposed to provide "clemency and full pardon to all repentant rebels." The rebels (represented by Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Edward Rutledge) did not agree to the conditions offered and the War for Independence continued. Had this conference gone otherwise, the United States might still be part of Great Britain today.
Bring a picnic lunch to eat on the lawn or at the waterfront pavilion of Conference House. With trees, grass, sedges, sandy beaches, and waterfront vistas, Tottenville bespeaks of another era.
The tour will also include two special delights: 1) Well make it a special point to visit with Tina Kaasmann-Dunn — proud homeowner of an enchantingly restored 19th century gentleman's country estate in the style of A. J. Downing; 2) We’ll also meet with Barnett Shepard, noted Staten Island Historian and author of the recently published book, “Tottenville: The Town the Oyster Built.”
Join Justin Ferate on this walk of Women's History in Lower Manhattan that encompasses the lives and histories of an array of women leaders over the past three centuries. The tour will acknowledge and honor suffragists, abolitionists, journalists, and powerful thinkers who changed both New York City and the nation.
We’ll discover lesser-know individuals, such as Elizabeth Jennings, whose 1854 lawsuit challenged racial discrimination in public transportation in New York City. We’ll trace histories of more famous individuals, such as tenacious advocate for birth control, Margaret Sanger as well as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton – the noted publishers of the outspoken suffragist journal, “The Revolution.” Learn of such diverse personalities and contributors to humanity as Emily Warren Roebling, Barbara Heck, and Ida B. Wells. We’ll also discuss the histories of Victoria Woodhull, the first woman (along with her sister) to operate a brokerage firm in Wall Street and then open a weekly financial newspaper. We’ll also address Muriel Siebert – often known as "The First Woman of Finance" – who was the first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange.
We’ll examine the lives of both the famous and the forgotten women who have made a tremendous impact on society – challenging the status quo and overcoming obstacles to freedom in obdurate and often hostile environments.
Join Tour Leader Justin Ferate as we discover one of this nation’s oldest towns. Flatbush, one of the original Dutch towns of Brooklyn, is also home to its oldest church congregation. Behind the church is the Old Dutch Cemetery with many prominent (and permanent) residents including Vanderbilt family members. Nearby Erasmus Hall, founded in 1787 (prior to Columbia University!) is one of the oldest schools in the U.S. Curiously both Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton contributed to build this once-prominent institution.
We'll travel the green wooded byways of this handsome neighborhood – the largest collection of single-family houses in the U.S. Our primary focus will be the planned garden community of Prospect Park South. Surprising to many, the streets are lined with elegant mansions, gracious maple trees and emerald-green lawns.
Many of the homes were built for the Movie Stars of Brooklyn's famous filmmaking era. When Brooklyn's Vitagraph Studios moved to California and changed their name to Warner Brothers another part of Brooklyn moved west as well. Inspired by Prospect Park South in Flatbush, Brooklyn, developers in Los Angeles created a Brooklyn-style enclave named Beverly Hills. Brooklynites even suggest that the name of Beverly Hills was inspired by Beverly Road, located in Prospect Park South, Brooklyn!
This tranquil area provides a feast of Shingle-style elegance, Corinthian and Doric columns (temples galore!), terra cotta details, Queen Anne facades, and all the delightful extravagances of what is often collectively known as "Carpenter Gothic." Some may recognize buildings in the neighborhood made famous by such films as “Sophie’s Choice.”
As a special treat, we’ll be visiting a very elegant private home in Prospect Park South.
Just across from Manhattan, but seemingly a world away, Greenpoint, the largest Polish community in New York City, is physically closer to Manhattan than any other neighborhood in Brooklyn. Join Justin Ferate as we visit this ethnically vital, yet often overlooked neighborhood – just across the East River.
Boasting of spectacular views of Manhattan, this is a solid
middle-class neighborhood of neat brick row houses and
attractive brownstones. The New York Times described Kent Street, just off Greenpoint Avenue, as “one of the city’s better and more completely preserved nineteenth-century streets.”
In the late 19th century, the Polish community streamed into this waterfront neighborhood to work in the area’s ironworks and oil refineries. Their presence is still strongly felt today in the neighborhood’s rich collection of Polish shops, restaurants, churches and social clubs. Highlights will include a grand Church of St. Anthony & St. Alphonsus by Patrick Keeley, the former Eberhard Faber pencil factory (memorable!), Charles Pratt’s Astral Apartments, the Greenpoint Shul (Orthodox), and much more.
In addition, Greenpoint has become an extension of the arts community of Williamsburg, so we’ll glimpse into that world as well. We’ll make a special trip to visit the studio of sculptor Howard Lerner. Lerner’s fantasy sculptures have been exhibited in New York galleries and museums, including Joan Whalen Fine Art and the Jewish Museum.
Howard Lerner says, “In my sculpture, I’ve created a series of found object constructions whose themes originate from the Old Testament, Yoga, and the Amusement Park. Inspired by Rube Goldberg and the work of numerous outsider artists, spirituality, and humor are aspects of these assemblages. Using discarded finds from our world, I weave and integrate Biblical verse from an ancient time to connect us with the Divinity in those legends.”
Some may linger after the tour for pastry at one of the local Polish bakeries!
First, we’ll travel to the Christian C. Sanderson Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania — a very personal museum of historical artifacts. The museum has agreed to open the collections just for us!
This is NOT your ordinary museum! Chris Sanderson’s very personal approach to history is what makes the museum unusual, if not unique. The Brandywine artist Andrew Wyeth — Sanderson’s life-long friend — founded the museum in 1967.
Lunch (included) will be at the noted restaurant Simon Pearce Brandywine – overlooking the Brandywine River.
After lunch, we’ll travel to Nemours Mansion & Gardens — the 300-acre former estate of Alfred I. du Pont — named for the du Pont ancestral home in north central France. The Louis XVI style mansion has recently undergone a $39,000,000 restoration.
Nemours was inspired by Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon at the Palace of Versailles. Carrère and Hastings (designers of the New York Public Library) designed the mansion and gardens in 1910. Nemours Mansion has 102 rooms and is furnished with fine period antiques, rare oriental rugs, and tapestries and paintings dating back as far as the 15th century.
The mansion tour will include rooms on three floors, decorated for the holidays, which will be followed by a bus tour of the gardens so we can all experience the delights of this magnificent estate.
Join noted Belgian journalist Jacqueline Goossens on this special bicycle tour!
Beginning at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum at Twelfth Avenue at 46th Street, this tour group, limited to ten bicyclists, will travel south along the Hudson River, through the Chelsea Piers – viewing the Golf Driving Ranges, located along the Hudson River.
The tour will include a brief visit the Chelsea Market and perhaps a stop for a brief walk along the High Line at Gansevoort Street. From there, the tour will follow the bike lane through the West Village to Tribeca and then jog over to the Hudson River via Battery Park City.
If time and the group’s inclination are in accord, there may be a short visit to the Winter Garden for an overview of the World Trade Center site.
From there, the group will bike further southward to Battery Park - where Jacqueline will point out a few landmarks with Belgian connections. Heading north, the group will proceed to Wall Street and the South Street Seaport with great views of three great bridges as well as the Brooklyn waterfront.
If the group is up to it, the tour will cross the Brooklyn Bridge, to bike through DUMBO and Vinegar Hill with a return over the Manhattan Bridge. En route, the group will stop for lunch or a snack, based on the group’s desires.
The lush plantings, shimmering lakes, and rolling hills of Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery inspired the creation of Central Park. As one of America's first garden cemeteries, Green-Wood, with its contemplative beauties, became New York's most scenic and choice location to spend eternity. Impressive mausoleums, often adorned with stained glass windows, and exquisite sculptures and monuments celebrate the lives of America's rich and famous.
See works by such noted artists and designers as Stanford White, Daniel Chester French, Richard Upjohn, Warren & Wetmore and Augustus St. Gaudens. Among the many stops will be the final resting places of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Horace Greeley, and Leonard Bernstein.
