Add to Calendar 09-03-2013 09-03-2013 15 Forgotten New York: The Story of James Gregory Talk & Tour The 19th-century New York waterfront was densely populated with manufacturing neighborhoods. As the city changed, these areas disappeared. But the pieces they created – cast-iron fixtures, bronze bells - sometimes pop up in unexpected places: a SoHo façade, Virginian steeples, even the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Join architect David Grider for a talk at Green-Wood Cemetery, as he details his fascinating research journey into one such shop - the Lower East Side foundry of James Gregory and its influence on American history. From the USS Monitor, to the famous 1885 bronze bell used at Coney Island’s Dreamland, Grider uncovers hidden threads, unexpected ties, and tells a rich story of vanished neighborhoods, forgotten industry, and one shopkeeper’s place among it all. The talk will be followed by a trolley tour of related Green-Wood sites, including the resting places of James Gregory himself, Brooklyn Bridge caisson maker Eckford Webb and cast iron great James Bogardus. The talk is free. Tickets for the trolley tour are $10 for Green-Wood Historic Fund members and $15 for non-members. Reservations for the trolley tour are strongly recommended and seating is limited. If the tour is not sold out in advance, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
