About the Event
Built in 1853 for the wealthy Hawley Family, elegant 47 Fifth Avenue had already been a residence for 64 years when the Salmagundi Club bought it in 1917 and remodeled it as their private clubhouse.
Now the oldest surviving mansion on iconic Fifth Avenue and a revered NYC Landmark, architectural historian and club member Anthony Bellov charts its fascinating transformation over the years using evidence hiding in plain sight, when you know where to look.
This event will be video-recorded and made available afterwards on YouTube permanently.
