THE ROSE HILL SECTION OF NOMAD — THROWING OFF VICTORIAN CONSTRAINTS
MEET: Redbury Hotel, 29 E. 29th St.
Rose Hill once held homes of old moneyed New Yorkers, but also included a safe house of the Underground Railroad. It was once the site of a snooty church, but just around the corner frequent assignations and colorful goings-on were part of that 1890s scene. Today you can see whole streets of stately Beaux-Arts buildings and a structure once tallest in the world. The dense vegetation of its beautiful park shields quiet space for art installations, children’s play, and a popular outdoor eatery.
