An aspiring young model arrives in NYC and meets a wealthy, influential man three times her age. He initially plays the role of benefactor, then lures her to his apartment, drugs and sexually assaults her. She goes on to marry an (unstable) millionaire playboy, who, when she confides in him about the assault, shoots and kills her “benefactor” in a crowded theater. A sensational trial ensues. Newspapers can’t get enough of the tale of the model and the two powerful and abusive men. LW! hosts New York Times bestselling author Simon Baatz for his reconstruction of the trial of Harry Thaw for the cold-blooded murder of celebrity architect Stanford White–culled from the 1906 tabloid accounts.

A beautiful Saturday guided walk exploring the architectural and historic riches of the UWS’s northernmost historic districts.

There’s no better way to spend a Spring afternoon!
