The location where famous romantic composer, Antonín Dvořák’s house once stood. He lived at the Manhattan residence from 1892-1895. There he composed both: From The New World Symphony and Cello Concerto. Even though many steps were taken to preserve the building, it was demolished in 1991. Today, a plaque pays homage to the composer’s home. The street was also named Dvořák Place in his honor, complete with a statute of Dvořák in nearby Stuyvesant Square. 

A memorial room in the Bohemian National Hall uptown was created to honor the composer, with the parts of the home’s original mantelpieces installed alongside period furniture.
