12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
DescriptionJoin us for a talk by Tom Miller, the well-known architectural and social history blogger, who will be speaking about prominent buildings that once graced Murray Hill, but are no longer with us. Grand structures, such as the Murray Hill Hotel, the Billings and Havemeyer Mansions on Madison Avenue and the 34th Street Armory were lost. Tom will explore the stories of the people and events as well as the architecture that made these structures worth remembering.
Tom is the author of "Seeking New York", which includes a section on Murray Hill. He writes a blog dedicated to New York City architectural history called "A Daytonian in Manhattan" (daytoninmanhattan.blogspot.com).
His lecture will highlight the rapid loss of architectural heritage to development, and underscores the MHNA's work to preserve the historic character of our area.
The talk will be followed by light refreshments.
