Discover Classical New York: The Montauk Club and its Architect with Francis Morrone

*Information gathered from the ICA&CA’s web site.


Friday, November 19; Reception at 6PM; Lecture at 7PM

Francis Hatch Kimball (1845-1919) is one of New York’s most fascinating architects. His career spanned the High Victorian period and the later Classical world of the early 20th century and brought forth a deliriously varied body of works, including the Montauk Club, the Trinity and United States Realty Buildings, the Corbin Building, the Gertrude Rhinelander Waldo mansion, Brooklyn’s Emmanuel Baptist Church, the Catholic Apostolic Church on 57th Street, and, in Philadelphia, the Reading Terminal. A pioneering skyscraper architect, Kimball’s works brilliantly exemplify the riotously eclectic tendencies of his times. Join author and architectural historian Francis Morrone for an illustrated talk on Kimball at the Montauk Club—one of architect’s masterpieces.

Participants will meet at the Montauk Club, 25 8th Avenue in Park Slop, Brooklyn. Business attire required. Reception includes an open bar (beer and wine) and passed hors d’oeuvres. Space is limited and paid reservations required (212) 730-9646, ext. 109.
