Back Porch History at Dyckman Farmhouse: Nick Dembowski

Nick Dembowski, Director of the Van Cortlandt House Museum, joins us for Back Porch History to discuss “The History of a NYC Street Corner.” Hear about the saga of the “Wading Place” at 230th Street and Broadway, where people once crossed from the mainland to Manhattan at low tide. This is one of the most significant yet under-recognized street corners in NYC history.

No registration is required for this event. The presentation will begin at 6:30 PM.

Dyckman Farmhouse Museum

Dyckman Farmhouse Museum tells the story of rural Northern Manhattan, a landscape and a lifestyle that disappeared in the transformation from farming community to urban neighborhood.

Through the story of the Dyckman family and farm the museum explores life in early 19th century rural Manhattan and the preservation of that memory in the early 20th century. During the city period, 1915-1916, the neighborhood was transforming and the Dyckman sisters responded by saving the farmhouse and creating the museum.
