Author (and Curbed contributor) James Nevius's most recent book, Footprints in New York, invites readers to travel back to various points in the city's history, from the Dutch colonial era to the recent past when SoHo was a "no go" area.
On Saturday, April 25, at 1 p.m., Nevius will be leading a walking tour based off of the Abraham Lincoln chapter in the book, honoring the 150th anniversary of the arrival of Lincoln's funeral train in New York City. James is giving away a pair of tickets to the tour (a $40 value) to one very lucky Curbed reader.
To enter, submit a brief paragraph to firstname.lastname@example.org about what year in NYC history (from 1600 to 1950) you'd most like to travel back to, and why. The deadline? Friday, April 24, at noon.
The winner will be e-mailed information about where to meet for the tour. Good luck to all you time-travelers!
