Before Salmagundi : Part Two. The evolution of an 1853 Fifth Avenue Mansion

Tuesday, January 17, 2023

5:30pm – 7:30pm

Free, In-Person

Pre-registration is required.

Club member and esteemed architectural sleuth Anthony Bellov continues his exploration of 47 Fifth Avenue with part two of his popular series. This program explores the historic fabric and architectural and social history of the Hawley Mansion, now the Salmagundi Club. 

Anthony will explore the stunning architecture of the double parlors and delve deeply into the former appearance and functions of the second floor, now housing the Club’s world-renowned 1917 library, revealing unnoticed details of past lives in the process.

Built in 1853 for the wealthy Hawley Family, elegant 47 Fifth Avenue had already been a residence for 64 years when Salmagundi Club bought it in 1917 and remodeled it as their private clubhouse, thereby saving it from demolition.

Now the oldest surviving mansion on iconic Fifth Avenue and a revered NYC Landmark, pursuing clues to 47 Fifth Avenue’s fascinating transformation over the years prior to Salmagundi is a grand saga in itself — if you know where to look.

Co-Sponsors: Anthony Bellov, Salmagundi Club and Merchant’s House Museum
