Walking Tour - Gilded Age Mansions of Fifth Avenue 

With Emma Guest-Consales '09

Sunday, June 9, 2024 I 11AM - 1PM (rain or shine)




In New York City, the “Gilded Age” was the period when robber barons like Frick and Carnegie built some of the most extravagant urban palaces the city has ever seen during the period of booming economic growth of the latter half of the 19th century.


Join Emma Guest-Consales '90 of My New York City Tours for a two-hour walk past some of the grand residences of the Beaux-Arts architects Hunt, White, and Gilbert. You'll hear stories of their designers and owners, as well as the history and scandals of the Gilded Age. These mansions in the heart of New York City helped give Fifth Avenue along Central Park the cachet it still holds today, as one of the most famous residential neighborhoods in the city.


The tour will be $20 per person and limited to 15 SCC NYC members.

We will meet at the Richard Morris Hunt Memorial on Fifth Avenue between 70th and 71st Streets, just opposite the Frick Collection
