Joyce Gold returns with: “The American Civil War in New York City”

Statue of the American Civil War in NYC

We enjoyed having Joyce Gold here last year – and we look forward to her upcoming Waterside talk, “The American Civil War in New York City”, Tuesday, January 28th!

In the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, it is easy to overlook the rich history of our city.

This program will highlight sites of importance in the American Civil War that today we walk by without even noticing. In a richly illustrated presentation, Joyce Gold will review the places in New York which were sites of action and significance.

Joyce Gold has been giving walking tours in New York for 30 years. She is one of Manhattan’s longest-serving independent full-time tour guides.

Joyce received a B.A. in English literature from Queens College and an M.A. in Metropolitan Studies at New York University. Her goal is to expand people’s understanding of how the city’s past is part of the present.
