From the Event Organizer:
Scandals! Murder! Romance Architecture! Come step inside some of the few remaining Gilded Age mansions of Fifth Avenue and learn about the people who lived in and designed these masterpieces. If you’re a fan of the HBO show The Gilded Age, you’ll love this tour. During the Gilded Age New York City became home to the greatest concentration of wealth in human history.

As America’s new millionaires competed with each other to see who could have the most ornate mansion alongside the newly created Central Park they spent vast sums of money to hire architects inspired by European palaces to build structures the likes of which had never been seen in America.

These men and women were as fascinating and complex as the homes they inhabited and we’ll hear stories of power, greed, love and generosity from a time when America was quickly becoming one of the richest and most powerful countries in the world.
