Mostly Clubs: A Morning Stroll

As the 19th century came to a close, many exclusive Manhattan clubs moved northward to the Upper East Side within walking distance of members’ homes.


This walking tour led by architectural historian Matt Postal will consider this trend through various distinguished examples, viewing grand and elegant purpose-built clubhouses that were designed by McKim Mead & White, Delano & Aldrich, and Thomas Harlan Ellett, as well as handsome residences that were converted to club use in the mid-20th century. Highlights will include the Cosmopolitan, Grolier, Knickerbocker, and Union Clubs, among others.
