|Straus Park, a memorial to Isidor and Ida Straus who died on the Titanic. Unfortunately this park was carved out of the new historic district extension.|
|Mansions and apartment buildings line Riverside Drive|
The tour began at Straus Park, at 106th and Broadway, and we worked our way through Riverside Park and West End Avenue down to 100th Street. We looked at many beautiful old rowhouses and apartment buildings along the way, all of which now have landmark protection (we focused on what is now protected, rather than the buildings along Broadway that were notoriously excluded from the district).
