  • Details

    Event Type Historic Site Tour Description Washington Park, Albany was born at the intersection of aesthetics and intense social control, as elites in the 1860s and 70s confronted their anxieties about public health, immigration, spreading tenements, and urban disorder. The park changed in the making, expressing a wealth of landscape ideas and changing norms of public behavior, all framed by an extraordinary wealth of nineteenth century architecture. In this excursion around the park John Pipkin will focus its early decades. Meet at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument near the intersection of Henry Johnson Blvd and Washington Park Rd.
