Bard Birthday Breakfast Benefit 2009

The Archive Project’s sixth annual Bard Birthday Breakfast Benefit was held on December 9, 2009. Guests braved the rain and wind to join us at the Manhattan Penthouse for breakfast, coffee, and the insights of architectural historian Francis Morrone, whose new book, Ten Architectural Walks in Manhattan, was just published by W.W. Norton. The ever gracious Otis Pratt Pearsall delivered the introduction. Mr. Morrone’s fascinating and entertaining lecture explored the impact of the walking tour as a preservation tool and prompted an equally interesting question-and-answer session. Guests also enjoyed the view from the seventeenth floor of the Manhattan Penthouse.

Many thanks to all who attended and supported NYPAP at this great event. Special recognition goes to those donors on the 10th Anniversary Committee and the Benefitt Committee:
