    Inside the Four Seasons & Other NY Interior Landmarks

    at The Museum of the City of New York

    Tuesday, October 20, at 6:30 p.m.

    Join The Museum of the City of New York and the authors of Interior Landmarks: Treasures of New York for a behind the scenes look at some of the City’s most interesting spaces. The authors will tell little-known and fascinating tales about landmarked interiors; including places like City Hall and the Tweed Courthouse, Loew’s Paradise Theater, the Four Seasons Restaurant, the Dime Savings, and Manufacturers Trust bank buildings.

    They will share stories of the political wrangling, financial skullduggery, design competitions, preservation challenges, and restoration problems that designers and builders dealt with to provide insight into why these venues are so special and how even being a landmark doesn’t guarantee that a great space will remain safe from damage, or change. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks, on view through January 3.

    Free for MCNY members; $12 for students/seniors; $16 for general public.
