Beyond Tenements with Francis Morrone This Wednesday
January 26th, 2009, 5:55 pm
Join architectural historian Francis Morrone this Wednesday, January 28, for the second in his four lecture series Architecture and Changing Lifestyles. New Yorkers’ lifestyles have changed continually over the years, constantly reinventing our notions of what it means to be a New Yorker. This lecture will take attendees beyond tenements to the many apartment houses the middle & upper classes constructed for themselves in New York City during the 1870s and 1880s. In four illustrated lectures, Francis Morrone examines four episodes of lifestyle change in New York history. Each of these episodes demonstrated remarkable innovation and adaptation to changing social and economic conditions, and causes us to imagine what lifestyle revolutions await us in the future. The third and final lectures in the series will be held at MAS on Wednesday, February 4, and Monday, February 9, respectively. Beyond Tenements: Apartment Houses for the Middle & Upper Classes, 1870s & 1880s Wednesday, January 28, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Reserve your place online or call 212-935-2075.
