E. L. Doctorow’s Bronx

In his 1985 novel World’s Fair, Doctorow writes ìEvery neighborhood had its school like my school, its movie, its street of shops built into the sides of the apartment houses; it was tunneled with subways and bound together with trolley lines, and elevated lines. Join BCHS guest tour guide Jean Arrington on an exploration of the Mt. Eden neighborhood in which Doctorow grew up, seeing all of the above, or remnants thereof. This tour meets on the northeast corner of East 170th Street and the Grand Concourse, at the East 170th Street stop on the D train.
