Artist Beatrice Glow and The Wayfinding Project have partnered with Alexandre Girardeau of Highway 101, ETC (Experiential Tech Community) to build Mannahatta VR, a virtual reality experience in the HTC Vive which brings together the past and present of one Broadway block. The team also collaborated with NYU Ground Manager George Reis to create a virtual tour of NYU’s native plant gardens. Visit 8 Washington Mews on November 14 or December 12 to meet Glow and experience Mannahatta VR.

Mannahatta VR (see a preview below) is a supplement to Lenapeway, an installation that will be on 24-hour view in the street-level windows of 715 Broadway (at Washington Place) from October 10 (Indigenous Peoples’ Day) to December 9. The location of the installation, which is viewable from the sidewalk 24/7 and is cosponsored by NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, marks the intersection of the main Lenape trail and a side-trail that traverses through present-day Washington Square Park.
