SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2023, 2:00 PM – TROLLEY TOUR
Tin Pan Alley, located on 28th Street between Broadway and 6th Ave was the birthplace of American popular music at the turn of the 20th century. It was here that music was created and promoted. Many musicians and singers such as Irving Berlin, George M. Cohan, Gus Edwards, and Nora Bayes were noted Tin Pan Alley artists. Join Woodlawn’s Director of Historical Services, Susan Olsen and George Calderaro, Director of the Tin Pan Alley American Popular Music Project for a Trolley Tour that explores the history of the composers, performers and “pluggers” of Tin Pan Alley. There will be singing on the Trolley!

The Tin Pan Alley American Popular Music Project commemorates and invigorates a living legacy: the birthplace of American Popular Music and the modern music industry. Through the Project’s work, in 2019 five buildings became official Tin Pan Alley landmarks with the designation of 47-55 West 28th Street by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Subsequently, 28th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue was officially co-named Tin Pan Alley by the City of New York.
