City Beautiful and Benevolent: Madison Square to Union Square with Jean Arrington
Meeting Location: Midtown Rest Stop, NW corner of 24th Street and Park Avenue
A single block along the south side of East 23rd Street has four thrift resale shops that support humanitarian causes, this unique cluster a hold-over of a long history of humanitarian initiatives located in this area. Join MAS as you explore several grand, turn-of-the-20th-Century headquarters of such organizations as the Russell Sage Foundation and the Charity Organization Society. The tour will examine a Carnegie branch library, a Quaker school, and two former vocational schools for girls, both started by philanthropic efforts and then made part of the public school system. You will experience, within the bustling capitalism of our city, this oasis of concern for all.
