Friends of the Upper East Side


The Gilded Age is one of my favorite historic times in history. There are so many fascinating stories that go with it and wonderful drama!! This is a great book and if you cannot attend the talk below...I would purchase it for a very interesting read!!   

Join FRIENDS OF THE UPPER EAST SIDE for a talk about "Art, Architecture, Scandal, and Class in America's Gilded Age"

Mosette Broderick, Director of the Urban Design and Architecture Studies Program and the Historical and Sustainable Architecture M.A. Program at New York University, will discuss her new book, Triumvirate: McKim, Mead & White. Known for their distinguished Beaux-Arts designs and an allegiance to the City Beautiful movement, the firm was responsible for many of New York City's greatest landmarks: the Arch at Washington Square Park, the Columbia University campus, the Manhattan Municipal Building, the Brooklyn Museum, the James A. Farley Post Office and the much-loved Pennsylvania Station. In addition to their public commissions, the firm's client list included America's greatest financiers and magnates. "Triumvirate is a book about America in its industrial transition; about money and class, about the education of an unsophisticated young country, and about the coming of artists as an accepted class in American society."
