About the Event

The dense urban landscape of Manhattan was once an expanse of bucolic rolling hills dotted with small farms and country estates. 18th and 19th century New Yorkers built grand country residences in the former countryside of Manhattan that within a few short generations would be consumed by urban development.

Architectural Conservator TR Hamilton explores the once rural past of the great country houses that once stretched across the lost country setting of New York City.

Join us after for dinner, by making a reservation via our Reservations page with the message “Lost Country Houses”.
