EVENT DETAILS

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.

Cal Snyder is the author of Out of Fire and Valor: The War Memorials of New York City from the Revolution to 9/11. Lucy Oakley is Head of Education and Programs at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery.
