Mr. Green and the Making of Central Park

Online via Zoom

Incredibly, much of what we all think of as quintessential New York City–Central Park, the NY Public Library, the Zoo, the American Museum of Natural History–is due to the Herculean efforts of one practically unknown man: Andrew Haswell Green.

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

Online via Zoom

It was good to be a prosperous New Yorker in the late 19th century: beautiful clothing, expensive furnishings, well-kept parlors, and endless entertaining.

The Scandalous Hamiltons

Online via Zoom

Celebrity obsession, con artists, and fake news. Long before Lin-Manuel, the 1890s public already had an insatiable appetite for all things Hamilton. By the era of Alexander Hamilton’s great-grandson, esteemed politician Robert Ray Hamilton, the name still signified political and financial power, privilege, money, and status. That is, until this privileged heir of one of […]
