Please join NYC Audubon for a presentation by Thomas Mellins
Monday, February 10, 7-8pm
Parish House of Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church
921 Madison Avenue, New York, NY

Throughout its history, New York City’s natural spaces have been shaped by
urban planning and development. Join author, curator, and architectural
historian Thomas Mellins to explore this process through the lens of his
book, New York Rising, an illustrated history of real estate development in
Manhattan. Learn about the big ideas, big personalities, and big risks that
collectively shaped the natural spaces that we love—and love to bird. Much
of the material is drawn from the Durst Organization archives. Mellins is
also the co-author, with Robert A. M. Stern, of New York 1880, New York
1930, and New York 1960. He has organized exhibitions at the Museum of the
City of New York, the National Building Museum, and Yale University. Copies
of New York Rising will be available for purchase and signing after the
lecture.

Refreshments served from 6:30 pm

NOTE: NYC Audubon's lecture series has migrated to a new location! The new
venue is the Parish House of Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church
921 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10021 (between 73rd and 74th Streets).
