Inside Schermerhorn Row: A Virtual Tour of the Seaport Museum’s Landmark Buildings
Sunday, October 18, 2-3 PM ET | Free | Online
We are continuing our annual OHNY’s Building Tours series this year by offering a special online virtual tour of the inside of Schermerhorn Row on Sunday, October 18, as part of OHNY Weekend 2020.
This special tour and conversation offers the opportunity to learn the history of Schermerhorn Row, one of the most significant examples of early 19th century commercial architecture in New York, and home of the South Street Seaport Museum.
The program will be led by the Museum’s Director of Collections with a live Q&A afterwards. The visit includes selected gallery spaces in the upper floors of these New York City Landmarks buildings, and the remains of two 150-year-old hotels made famous by New Yorker writer Joseph Mitchell’s “Up in the Old Hotel.”
