We the participants in the undergraduate seminar “Spain in New York” (College of Arts and Science, New York University, Spring, 2011) have created this website, to showcase the research we have conducted on the presence of Spaniards and Spanish culture in New York, past and present. The seminar was led by Professor James D. Fernández (far right).
We have focused on the area between Broadway and the Hudson River, from Houston Street to 23rd Street, a district which, as you will see if you poke around these pages, is particularly rich in historic traces and current examples of Spanish culture in New York.
