Originally an Indian foot trail, Bowery is NYC’s oldest thoroughfare.

It was recently named to NY State Register of Historic Places.

The Bowery Alliance of Neighbors, Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and Historic Districts Council are sponsoring a walking tour of the Bowery in conjunction with the Historic Districts Council’s “The Great Outside: Preserving Public and Private Open Spaces”Conference. All are welcome on the tour, which is free of charge!
