For fans of Stanford White’s Gilded Age New York

UPDATE POST for everyone who gave me their name for the Stanford White event: all names (Susan Spector got the last seat) have been added to the list and confirmed by Landmark West, an event co-sponsor. For more information, go to this link.

If you’re fascinated by the architecture and excitement of New York’s Gilded Age, then this is for you.

On September 12, the The National Arts Club and Landmark West are hosting an hour-long program called “Temples of Power, Temples of Pleasure: Stanford White’s Manhattan.”

Author Paula Uruburu will offer insight into White’s creative genius and scandalous love life. The program and a Q and A take place at the beautiful National Arts Club building at 15 Gramercy Park South.

If any Ephemeral New York readers would like to attend, please message me and I can add your name to a list; admission will be free.

Landmark West has more info here.

    Hi there.
    I’d love to attend the talk about Stanford White. I am a volunteer greeter/tour guide in the park for the Washington Square Park Conservancy. We have studied Stanford White in relation to the arch and of course his scandalous murder. I’d love to know more. If possible I’d like to bring another fellow volunteer or even two? Thank you so much.

  11. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    Thank you all—I have everyone’s names and will forward to the organizers. I was told Ephemeral New York could have up to 30 seats, so it shouldn’t be sold out, but I will follow up and make sure.

  12. Linda Davies Says:

    Please add my name, Linda Davies, to the guest list.

  13. tipandjaminwonderland Says:

    I moved to NYC last year and fell in love with the architecture of this city – even the old flats. I am just discovering some of the architects and your most interesting blog. If you have 2 tks remaining my husband and I would so enjoy this program. Thank you.

  14. Ron Janoff Says:

    If this is the place to send the request to, please add my name: Ron Janoff

  17. Linda Davies Says:

    Any chance of getting a second entry for my husband, Mike Davies? He’s decided to join me if he can get in. Thanks!

  18. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    Thanks again for your fast replies, I’ve got your names and a plus-one should be fine

  19. tipandjaminwonderland Says:

    thank you. Will you let us know, or do we just show up?

  20. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    I’ll send out an update post the day before to make sure everything is set, and then my understanding is that you can show up–your names should be on a list. But I’ll confirm next week. Ephemeral New York isn’t a host or sponsor, but the kind folks at Landmark West offered me 30 seats, thinking that readers would be interested.

  21. Linda Davies Says:

    Thanks for passing this on to us! You send the best updates…

  22. trilby1895 Says:

    This is irresistable, ephemeral; would you please add “Trilby” to the list? I look forward to seeing my name on the attendance list prior to the event. Thank you!

  23. Robert Feder Says:

    Hello, I love your site. Please let me know if there is still room available at the event and if so, include my name and my wife’s name -Robert Feder and Florence Zeman as attendees at the event.
    Thank you,
    Robert Feder

  24. oneillfencer Says:

    I would love to attend the event.  Name: Patrick O’Neills Can please confirm if you’ve successfully registered me to attend?

  25. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    Trilby, Robert +1, and Patrick: I will forward your names on, thank you!

  26. Alan Glaze Says:

    Did Sanford White design the National Arts Club? I thought it was the Player’s Club. Pardon my ignorance, but did he design both of them?

  27. Alison Says:

    Is it still possible for a friend and I to attend the lecture? My name is Alison Schondorf.

    Thanks very much.

  28. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    Yes, I’ll forward your name, thank you. I think you are the last one!

  29. Alison Says:

    Much appreciated. Just to make sure I have it right: is that for one or two people?

  30. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    for you and a plus-one

  31. Pat DeMarco Says:

    Hi! If there are any tkts. left, I would really enjoy going. Thanks so much, Pat DeMarco.

  32. Kris Says:

    Please sign me and a companion up for the lecture on Stanford White. (Two attendees, please.) Names: Kris Saylors and Ralph Baker.

    And thanks for your stories in Ephemeral New York. The pieces are terrific.

    Thank you.

  33. Susan Spector Says:

    Please add me to the list. Thanks.

  34. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    I think we’ve reached the limit for tickets!

  35. Timothy Grier Says:

    I wish I could attend but am not in NYC this month. I want to comment on the photograph of MSG taken from inside Madison Square. The building on the right is the Jerome mansion where Winston Churchill’s mother Jennie Jerome lived.

  36. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    Update for everyone who signed up for a seat for the Stanford White event: all your names (Susan Spector got the last seat) have been added to the list, and that’s been confirmed by Landmark West, one of the event co-sponsors.

  37. tipandjaminwonderland Says:

    I want to thank you for opening these seats for your readers. We had a wonderful time last night, learned a lot about the life of Standford White, enjoyed the enlightened contributions of Paula Uruburu, met new people, admired the National Arts Club, found new resources for our adventures, and even enjoyed the walk home in the rain. Gracias my friend.

  38. Linda Davies Says:

    I also want to add my thanks, and echo those sentiments. A lovely evening! Thank you so much for the seats!

  39. ephemeralnewyork Says:

    So glad to hear it! And the rain yesterday evening didn’t keep you from taking an enlightening trip back to the Gilded Age.
