Antonin Dvorak’s Home

The location where famous romantic composer, Antonin Dvorak’s house once stood. He lived at the Manhatten 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 Dvorak Place in his honor, complete with a statute of Dvorak in nearby Stuyvesant Square.
