Treasures from the Hispanic Society and Museum

Not so quiet, please!

      Among the things WaHi is famous for is the noise. Lots of it!

      But does it seem eerily quiet now? You may not miss the auditory assaults, but the sounds of people mingling and waiters serving are becoming memories.

      Refresh yours with the New York Public Library’s new online album: Missing Sounds of New York. It probably won’t win any Grammys, but each track uses a combination of sounds to create familiar canvases on which mini stories are placed: a glass breaking in a bar, a dance performance on the subway, an overly enthusiastic baseball fan.

      It’s free and it’s available from the library. (No need for a library card!)

     Near the turn of the twentieth century, New York’s housing, street grid, and subway infrastructure were about to reshape the bucolic landscape of Northern Manhattan from one of verdant farmland to flat cityscapes.

     But the urban revolution was to come at a steep price: not just at the cost of a couple of million dollars, but to the ancient and invaluable relics belonging to the Lenape people, Dutch settlers, and the Revolutionary War still buried beneath Uptown’s untouched soil.

     Hear the incredible story of a rag-tag group of amateur archeologists who joined forces in a race to save the history of Manhattan before it was gone for good.

     Once upon a time in old New York, glittering castles adorned the high ground of Uptown's rolling hills, occupied by merchant princes, captains of industry, and real estate titans.

     By the end of the twentieth century most of these gilded palaces had been knocked down and paved over, their legacy all but forgotten.

     The New York Adventure Club tells the story of the magnificent homes and eclectic characters of a lost era, and how they shaped WaHi and New York for generations to come. The presentation will include the palace of C.K.G Billings, Tryon Hall, on the current site of Fort Tryon Park. Billings was so crazy-rich that he once hosted a 14-course dinner on horseback, which included caviar, flaming peaches, and Champagne served from saddlebags.

     Before movie production moved to Hollywood, New York filmmakers churned out silent films from a makeshift studio atop a boiler factory on West 56th Street and Eleventh Avenue. But when producers needed to film a wild and woolly western, the crew headed to the Upper Manhattan where the dirt roads, hills, and trails could still pass for the American west.

     This is the story behind the origins of the film industry, and the pioneering films, directors, and actors whose legacy was defined in the hills of WaHi and Inwood more than a century ago.

     Join the New York Adventure Club on a stunning voyage back in time to explore the dusty lots and rural trails of northern Manhattan.

     Led by uptown historian and best–selling author Cole Thompson, the deep dive will explain why Uptown and Fort Lee were the sites for American West scenes, review the movie stars of the uptown films, including Mary Pickford and Florence Lawrence, and shows examples of talkies that take advantage of our scenery, from Coogan’s Bluff starring Clint Eastwood to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Basketball Diaries.

      If you like outdoor geometry, get on the street for sunrise and sunset when the shadows line up with the streets.

      The “Manhattanhenge” effect works Uptown on days different from the rest of the island’s.

      To see the sun line up with the streets in Hudson Heights (on 181st Street in the photo), where the street grid is aligned differently from most of the borough, get out on April 18; it’s also on August 26 in Hudson Heights Henge. Fort George Henge is on the same dates as Manhattan, and Inwood Henge is on January 23 — the grid there is so katy-wompus that the sun aligns when it is due “south.”

     The effect works below 174th and above 174th if you go east of Broadway (for sunrise: sunset views may be blocked by buildings to the west). So if you want to see Manhattanhenge, as it’s dubbed, hope for clear skies on May 30 and June 12.

     Hudson Heights Henge: Thursday, August 26, at dawn and dusk.

     You can look for the dates in all the city’s neighborhoods on this map from Carto.
