Rhinelanders in Yorkville: A Walking Tour

« All Events

One of the earliest immigrant families from Europe, the Rhinelander family immigrated to New York in the late 17th century to escape religious persecution. They prospered in their new country, becoming one of New York City’s most prominent families, and left a rich architectural legacy in Yorkville. Our walking tour will focus on the remarkable residential structures and philanthropic institutions that the Rhinelanders commissioned in the 1880s and 1890s to benefit these new immigrant groups. The tour will begin in the Hardenbergh/Rhinelander Historic District and conclude at the Church of the Holy Trinity, a “verdant treasure [that includes] one of New York’s greatest bell towers” (AIA Guide) and was built in 1897.

Meeting location will be provided upon ticket purchase and registration.
