Join us each month for our Lunch and Learn Series – an intimate conversation with agency staff and special guests on the collections of the Municipal Archives and Library, as well as the history of New York City.
This month, Matt Minor will take us on a visual journey to explore the history and design of the Hall of Records at 31 Chambers Street in Manhattan – home to the Municipal Archives and Library, as well as the Manhattan Surrogate’s Court. It is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and celebrated public buildings in the city.
Designed by John Rochester Thomas and completed by Tammany Hall architects Horgan and Slattery, this dramatic space is often seen in movies and on popular television shows such as Law & Order.Buy tickets/get more info now
