From the 7th Regiment Armory to St. James's Church to the Society Library to the Knickerbocker Club, the lifestyles of the rich and famous at the turn of the 20th century still resonate in the urban fabric of Manhattan's Upper East Side. Join us to explore the homes, churches, clubs, libraries, military associations, and war memorials of the silk-stocking denizens portrayed in the exhibition Beauty's Legacy: Gilded Age Portraits in America. Meeting location will be provided to patrons when they purchase tickets.
Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
