East of Eden: William Niblo and His Pleasure Garden of Yore
Anderson Hall of Calvary Church 61 Gramercy Park North, Manhattan

In the next chapter of my ongoing work about the early and mid-19th century NYC tavernkeep and pleasure garden operator, William Niblo, I'll be the featured speaker at Calvary Church at Gramercy Park on Sunday, April 21st at a luncheon in Anderson Hall (the Parish House) at 61 Gramercy Park North right after 11:00 a.m. Mass. The luncheon will start at about 12:15 and the talk will be held during lunch, which is donation-as-you-will. Further details are at my website at http://newyorkwanderer.com/niblo-calvary-talk/ Niblo was a distinguished and generous member of Calvary for many decades, and his relationship with the parish's pastor, the Reverend Francis Lister Hawks will be a special focus of my talk as well as some things you never knew about Lola Montez....:-)
