Illustrated Lecture: Hunting Gargoyles with John Freeman Gill

“For years,” writes The Washington Post, native New Yorker and former New York Times City writer John Freeman Gill has been “writing about architecture and real estate, and now… he’s embarked on a novel.”

The Gargoyle Hunters “solves the mystery of a stunningly brazen architectural heist—the theft of an entire landmark building—that made the front page of The New York Times in 1974.”

Gill will share the research that went into his novel in an in-depth talk, exploring architectural sculpture that still survives in the Greenwich Village and South Village Historic Districts. Learn about gargoyle hunting, and how immigrant artisans from Europe adorned the city with their imaginations, turning our streets into a wonderfully imaginative public art gallery.
