Co-Sponsored by The Gilded Gentleman Podcast and Bowery Boys Walking Tours

Join Carl Raymond, host of The Gilded Gentleman history podcast for this unique look inside the world of Old New York. In many ways, the roots of the society that fueled the Gilded Age began here, with the old money families, like the Astors.  Wealthy families, such as the Tredwells, who owned what is today the Merchant’s House Museum, were the foundation of the economy and society we call “Old New York.”

This 90-minute in-person tour will begin with a brief walk in the neighborhood south of Astor Place, pre-Civil War New York’s wealthiest area and then proceed to the Merchant’s House Museum. This unique expertly guided tour inside the house will include the formal parlor and dining room, the families private areas and bedrooms, and we’ll even have a chance to visit the servant’s quarters. $40; Register for “Inside Old New York.”
