The corner of Broadway and Church in 2019 is the site of Brickhouse restaurant
Fireworks lit up the Nyack night sky in 1868 after a political rally at the Wigwam, located on Broadway where the Brickhouse Restaurant is now located. The Wigwam was the community center of its day and counted a meat market, grocery, stable, and meeting hall among its businesses. Political rallies, speeches, and music were heard in the halls. It hosted bicycle races. Horace Greeley gave a speech from its front porch to some 1,500 people during the 1868 campaign.
