Jersey City, NJ
Sunday, October 29
10:00 a.m.

Join Patrick Harshbarger for a 2-hour architectural walking tour of Jersey City's Warehouse District. Several years ago Patrick prepared a National Register of Historic Places nomination for these threatened resources, once among the largest and tallest buildings in downtown Jersey City but now dwarfed by newly constructed skyscrapers transforming the city's skyline. Highlights include Merchant's Refrigerating Company Warehouse (1902), the Butler Brothers Warehouse (1904-05) and the Great A&P Tea Company warehouse complex (1908-1915). We'll also swing past the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad Powerhouse and time permitting may venture to Paulus Hook, where Patrick has also been working on a project to redesign a small city park near the site of a Revolutionary War fort.

We'll meet promptly at 10 am on Sunday, October 29, at the ground level outdoor plaza next to the Katyń Memorial above the Exchange Place PATH Station at the eastern end of Montgomery Street in Jersey City. This tour will occur rain or shine, so dress appropriately for being outdoors and walking several miles at a comfortable pace.

Preregistration is not needed for this tour.
