About Public Programs

 

The New-York Historical Society regularly plays host to the most eminent historians, writers and thinkers in the nation.

The heart of the New-York Historical Society public program activity is the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series. Through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz, New-York Historical has been able to bring a wide array of extraordinary lectures and dynamic conversations to New York’s Upper West Side. Our broad range of programs feature topics in history and current affairs, highlights from current exhibitions, and lively musical events.
