Description

Join us for a talk by Tom Miller, well-known architectural and social history blogger.

Fascinating Murray Hill residents and the houses they lived in will be the subject of the talk, including Martha Bacon who lived at 1 Park Avenue (the house is now demolished), actress Helen Dauvray who married baseball player John Montgomery Ward, Horace Walpole Carpentier who sent the first transcontinental telegraph message, and the residents of 109 East 39th Street, where the event is being hosted.

About the speaker:

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).

After the talk, you will be able to ask questions and meet with your Murray Hill neighbors at a coffee reception.

This event is presented by the Preservation & Design Committee of The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association and the Society of Jewish Science / Center for Applied Judaism.
