Home Sweet Mansion: A Peek into the Domestic Lives of Gilded Age New Yorkers 

Tuesday, March 5th 6:30-7:45pm  35 W. 67th Street 2-for-1 Tickets for Partner-level Members!
It was good to be a prosperous New Yorker in the late 19th century: beautiful clothing, expensive furnishings, well-kept parlors, and tables laden with food. But someone had to do the hard work of actually cooking and cleaning, and it certainly wasn’t the prosperous New Yorker. Esther Crain, founder of Ephemeral New York, offers a peek at just how the upper classes navigated the domestic side of life—and how a staff of maids, coachmen, and other servants managed the households inside the Upper West Side’s sumptuous mansions and elegant brownstones.
