Join History With A Bash On The Bowery!

When an invitation reads “…An evening of music, food, and libations”, my RSVP checked yes is returned in no time.  Even better when the festivities are celebrating the oldest street in my favorite city in the world.

On March 20th, 2013, join Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and Bowery Alliance of Neighbors at the Bowery Hotel as they celebrate the designation of The Bowery Historic District to the National Registrar of Historic Places.  The party will feature musicians, singers, dancers, magicians, and poets who will be celebrating the Bowery’s rich cultural history.  Did I mention the cool cat Martin Scorsese will be one of the honorary hosts?!



The Bowery has housed a bit of everything during its time…from vaudeville to Yiddish theater, to flophouses and CBGB, it’s truly a street that has always embraced the avant-garde.  The President of Two Bridges Neighborhood Council, Victor Papa, states, “This isn’t just Lower East Side history—this is National history. It is now undeniably clear that the Bowery plays a central role in development of American culture.”  Pushing the envelope has always been what the Bowery is known for, and it’s no surprise it’s finally earning the recognition it deserves.

I, for one, am pretty excited to have an excuse to break out my pink flapper dress.  For more information and to purchase tickets to the party, click here.

Also, make sure to follow Two Bridges and UsedYorkCity on Romio!  Just another way to stay connected to your NYC neighbors…both online and off!

    I have only visited NYC once and it was more or less just a 1/2 day as we passed through. I thought at the time what a great place it looked and how I must pay it a proper visit. That was 20 years ago and I still have not gone back but I think about it more and more these days. When I read something like this it makes me think I need o tack action quickly and get out there!

      Absolutely! There’s no time like the present!;-) No matter what your interests are, you can surely find plenty of things in NYC that cater directly to them! Hope you are able to make a visit:-)

  • Have fun. Take pictures in your flapper dress.
    One and all are invited to my website for “…An evening of music, food, and libations.”
