Join us for a live walking tour conducted by Samantha Rose Hill
to celebrate the launch of the self-guided audio walk on Gesso, "Hannah Arendt's New York City." Registration is required and capacity is limited to 25 people.
Please note, the meeting point will be the Soldiers and Sailors Monument at the intersection of West 89th Street and Riverside Park.
The Upper West Side was Hannah Arendt’s home from 1941 to 1975. This neighborhood on a hill, home to fellow artists, writers, and friends, became a haven from her endless speaking and teaching schedule, which took her around the world. She wrote here, entertained here, taught here, rested here, and it was here where she found the four walls necessary for solitude, friendship, and thinking. This map traces how Hannah Arendt made a home in America, discovering where she used to live and how she got her start as a writer.
