At Home With Queens College Presents The Musical Heritage of Queens: A Virtual Walking Tour

What do classical composer Karol Rathaus, jazz great Louis Armstrong, hip-hop pioneers Run-DMC, and punk paragons The Ramones have in common? They all lived in Queens! And they all have public places named to honor them in their home borough. Join Lori Wallach, Queens Memory Outreach Coordinator at Queens College, for a virtual walking tour that explores a sampling of the diverse musicians who’ve practiced their art in our borough!

This tour is co-sponsored by the Queens College Library and Queens College Office of Alumni Relations and is part of Queens Memory’s Queens Name Explorer, an initiative to uncover the stories behind the borough’s named streets, schools, buildings, parks, and monuments. Major funding for the Queens Name Explorer project was provided by a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
