"Walk and Talk" in Sunset Park

Cayuga Heights and Sunset Park will be featured on Saturday, July 8 at 11:00 in an hour-long Walk and Talk event sponsored by Historic Ithaca as part of its series to celebrate the Tompkins County Bicentennial.

We will gather at the park overlook on Sunset Drive where Bea Szekely will talk about the gift of Sunset Park to the village by Jared and Jane Newman in 1928, and Fred Cowett will talk about the natural history of the park area.

Then we’ll stroll along Sunset Drive and Corson Place while Pat Longoria, Lynn Thommen and Bonnie MacDougall talk about past residents and their homes. The whole event should take about an hour with plenty of time for informal questions.

Please come. The rain date is Saturday, July 15.
