Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue NYC (67th Street + Park Avenue)
Ms. Moffett Roach, will guide our small group on a tour of the Exclusive rooms of the Park Avenue Armory, which include the recently renovated Board of Officers Room which has garnered a reputation for its austerely elegant Gilded Age Interior, and the newly renovated monument of 19th-century decorative arts, The Veterans Room, the most significant remaining intact interior in the world by Louis C. Tiffany and Co. The design of the room by these artisans was exotic, eclectic, and full of experimentation, with Greek, Moresque, Celtic, Egyptian, Persian, and Japanese styles. Ms. Moffett Roach will also reveal a segment of the Park Avenue Armory illustration collection.
This is a special event + will be capped off at 25 total guests.
