Virtual Tour of the Merchant’s House
The Greatest House in the World!
Thursday, May 21, 6:00 pm
Ever wonder why the Merchant’s House is an exterior and interior landmark – one of only 120 buildings and 6 residences in New York City? Here’s your chance to find out!
Join Merchant’s House Board Member and expert Anthony Bellov for a virtual top-to-bottom tour of our virtually unaltered late-Federal and Greek Revival row house, the height of fashion in 1832. This tour will explore little-known or rarely noticed fine points of the architecture of the brick-and-marble rowhouse, shedding light on building techniques and the social expectations of New York before the Civil War.
Anthony Bellov holds a Bachelor’s in Architecture from Pratt Institute and a Graduate in Museum Leadership from Bank Street College of Education, and is owner of Anthony Bellov Video Productions, an award-winning boutique video production company based in NYC. He is a long-time volunteer and board member of the Merchant’s House Museum and an aficionado in 19th century American decorative arts and architecture.
