Gracie Mansion and New York Homes of the Early Republic

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of historic Gracie Mansion serving as New York’s “Little White House,” architectural historian Barry Lewis delves into the fascinating story behind the generation of New York homes built during the Early Republic. Dubbed “Federal” in honor of the new national government, light-filled New York-area homes, including the early 19th-century Boscobel and Hamilton Grange, ushered in a new era of remarkably modern design.

Barry Lewis is an architectural historian who specializes in European and American architecture from the 18th to 20th century.
