Special offer for Ephemeral NY readers for a talk on architects McKim, Mead and White

If you’re a fan of New York City’s Gilded Age architecture—as Ephemeral New York is—then you know McKim, Mead & White.

The elegant structures designed by this firm of famed architects helped bring the 19th century city into the modern era—from East Side mansions (like the Villard Houses, above) to Broadway office buildings, the original Penn Station (below), the marble arch of Washington Square, and Brooklyn’s Prison Ship Martyrs Monument. The buildings of their later years are all around us. But what about how they got their start?

Landmark West! will be hosting a Zoom talk about McKim, Mead & White’s early years on Thursday, April 29 from 6 pm to 7:15 pm. Ephemeral New York readers can sign up for the talk at a 50% discount—from $20 to $10. The talk will be led by Mosette Broderick, architectural historian and author of triumvirate: McKim, Mead & White. Find out more about the talk here. If you decide to reserve space, just put  “Ephem” in the coupon code.

    I love the Villard Houses. Used to be a part of my walking thru midtown when I was a messenger way back when. Added with St Pat’s across the street, a bit of old NY was as near as it was ever gonna get. Thanks…
