Wednesday, March 13th 5:30-7:00pm 170 Central Park West New-York Historical Society $5 Tickets for LW!
Join LW! at the Center for Women’s History to salute “all the single ladies” who bravely forged new paths for women in early 20th-century New York City. We’ll explore the women-only homes designed to offer “good moral surroundings” for young ladies, the hotels that provided independence and ladylike comforts for “business women,” and a taste of what it might have been like to make one’s way through New York City in the heady, early years of the 1900s. Special offer for LW! Members for this LW! program at the New-York Historical Society. Use Discount Code 0313 for $5 Tickets.

Anthony Bellov (a LW! fan favorite) explores Rosario Candela’s Upper West Side architectural roots. We’ll enjoy gorgeous photos of our own local Candela treasures – many landmarked – and discuss the signature design features that typify Candela’s work, all told in Mr. Bellov’s inimitable style, bringing people, periods, and buildings to life as few can. Come see what the latest city-wide exhibitions missed – Candela on the Upper West Side is a must-attend!.

A private, behind-the (literal)-scenes tour of the legendary home of The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park! If you’ve ever enjoyed a summer’s evening at The Public Theater -beneath the stars and against the backdrop of Belvedere Castle – and wondered “how do they do this?” then this is the afternoon tour for you! We’ll explore this very special amphitheater as it readies for the new summer season and trod the boards where the likes of Streep and Pacino have delivered historic lines. Come see where the magic happens in Central Park!

Upper West Side Renovation & Preservation
Wednesday, April 17th 6:30-7:45pm
Throughout PRESERV’s 25 years in building restoration, the firm has completed well over 50 projects on the Upper West Side. Carl Culbreth, Founder and President, will focus on five of these projects in particular: The Lucerne Hotel, The Hadrian, 280 West End Ave, 57 West 75th Street and a rowhouse on West 86th. The projects feature dramatic cornice restorations, entire façade repair and recoating, asphalt roof installation to simulate slate, terra cotta reinstallation, and more. Carl will share details of each along with progress photos, featuring a few fantastic UWS “before” and “afters” brought back to life!
