About the event
5th Avenue from the Frick Collection to Cooper Hewitt
Join me on a virtual walk up Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue as I share photos and tell stories about the homes and their owners—people like Henry Clay Frick, Andrew Carnegie, Joseph Pulitzer, and other wealthy New Yorkers who spared no expense on these magnificent homes that still stand today. Learn about the Beaux Arts architectural style that defined the era and the aesthetic of New York during the City Beautiful Movement, and the architects that designed them, names like Stanford White, Whitney Warren, and the team of Carrère & Hastings. This presentation will give you a glimpse into the life of one of New York’s most prestigious avenues during the Gilded Age.
