Walking Tour of 15 Landmarks Attracts Many to Murray Hill in Support of Cultural Medallion Program!
On a lovely Saturday afternoon in mid-October, 70 people took part in a walking tour of 15 landmark buildings in historic Murray Hill sponsored by the Preservation & Design Committee of the MHNA.
This was the Committee’s first event to support our participation in the Cultural Medallion Program. Under the auspices of the Historic Landmarks Preservation Center, this Program was established to commemorate the residences of distinguished New Yorkers who made their mark in the arts, politics, business and other notable endeavors. The only medallion currently in Murray Hill is in commemoration of Malvina Hoffman, the famous sculptor whose studio was located at the far end of Sniffen Court.
