New Year, Old World: Gilded Grandeur on the Upper East Side

Looking for some grandeur this New Year? Join FRIENDS to revel in the architectural glory of the lost Gilded Age mansions of Fifth Avenue. On this virtual tour with Architect Gary Lawrance, we’ll make our way down what was once known as ‘Millionaire’s Row,’ revisiting the sites of the George J. Gould Mansion, the William A. Clark House, and the William Salomon Mansion. We’ll discover the rich history behind these fabulous facades, consider the context of the turn-of-the-century Upper East Side in which they were built, and discuss the dynamics of urbanism that led to their demolition.
