Event Details

Civil War Ships, a Coney Island pier, vanished Lower East Side streets and Green-Wood – they all converge in this talk by architect David Grider. David’s unflagging curiosity led him on a long research journey through the brass foundry of James Gregory’s surprising eminence in New York history.

The rapid-prototyping neighborhoods of foundries & ship yards may have vanished long ago, but their artful pieces still pop up in SoHo facades, Virginian steeples and, surprisingly, the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. He’ll detail his findings and the hidden threads one uncovers in research. It’s perfect for urban history enthusiasts or anyone who’s ever dove head first into the research rabbit hole.

After the talk, hop on our trolley for a tour of related Green-Wood sites, like James Gregory himself, Brooklyn Bridge caisson maker Eckford Webb, and cast iron great James Bogardus.

This event has two parts, with separate tickets for each part:

  1. The free book talk/presentation in the historic Green-Wood chapel, ending with a book signing.
  2. A guided trolley tour immediately following the talk. Tickets are $10 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and $15 for non-members.

Seating is limited for both the talk and the trolley tour, and reservations are recommended. To purchase tickets, call 718-210-3080 or order online via Eventbrite. Please include both free talk tickets and trolley tour tickets in your order if you would like to attend both parts of the event.
