The Bowery Alliance of Neighbors
Windows on the Bowery is an online and print exhibit documenting 64 highlights and histories along “NYC’s Oldest Street.”
“The Bowery – its broad, crooked arc first traversed on foot by Native Americans over unknown centuries – remains New York City’s oldest thoroughfare, and one of the world’s few streets whose name evokes meaning beyond a mere place on a map. Stretching 1.25 miles from Chatham Square to Cooper Square, 400 years of Euro-American history make the Bowery undisputedly the city’s most architecturally diverse and historically significant streetscape.” – Kerri Culhane, Architectural Historian
Windows on the Bowery is an amazing glimpse into extraordinary places, people, and histories of the LES.
