1861:  Thousands throng Broadway to cheer New York's soldiers marching to the Civil War.


1945:  Rodgers' and Hammerstein's "Carousel" debuted on Broadway.



1965:  New York City finally enacted the Landmarks Law, preserving in subsequent decades over two thousand buildings and districts. The preservation movement grew from the rubble of the original magnificent Penn Station demolished in 1963.

We explore landmarking on these NYC tours:  Wall Street tours, Colonial NYC tours, SoHo tours, Brooklyn Heights tours, Harlem tours, Greenwich Village tours, and Grand Central tours.  If you see a brown sign, look around.


1989..."The Central Park Jogger" was brutally raped and beaten to near death.  Five teenagers were convicted in the media and the courts.  Pretty much everyone thought they did it.  Turns out not.



2001:  Mel Brooks' musical "The Producers" debuted on Broadway onto six years, 2502 performances, and 12 Tony awards.
