Harvard Club of New York City

New York City’s Art Commission, its extensive archive and its significance to historic preservation were the subjects of Michele H. Bogart’s talk at the 4th Annual Bard Birthday Breakfast Benefit on December 19th at the Harvard Club. The Bard Breakfast provides a chance for NYPAP to celebrate the legacy of Albert S. Bard’s civic leadership and to recall the contributions made to New York City, aesthetic regulation, and the preservation movement by organizations such as the New York City Art Commission. Michele H. Bogart’s exploration of the Art Commission’s historical and contemporary importance to preservation reflects continuing concern for this type of civic improvement and NYPAP was pleased to highlight such an important topic at the 2007 program.

From the Park you get a most impressive view of steamers leaving for different pleasure resorts. The aquarium shown on the left has 122 glass tanks, which are displayed with living fishes and is visited daily by thousands of people. A sail up the Hudson River is a sight that is well worth taking in when visiting New York:" Courtesy of the Anthony C. Wood Archive
