The tour will cover the Astoria Arts District, Queen’s with tour guide Rob Walsh.
With the advances in technology, The area that was known as New York City’s Printing District is long gone and left many buildings empty and underutilized just north of Canal Street and west of Sixth Avenue.
This area has been rebranded as Hudson Square, a new business improvement district has been added, creative retail has been add to the ground floors, streetscape improvements have been made and zoning was changed to build residential buildings.
Today, Hudson Square is home to many known as the creative class – designers, architects, tech companies, public relations firms, and radio stations that include 1010 WINS – where there will be a reception after the tour.
