October 13 - 14, 2021
Tuxedo Park
WITH Michael Bruno

We invite you to join us for 36 hours behind the gates of Tuxedo Park, New York with Michael Bruno – founder of online luxury goods marketplace 1stdibs.

Historian Chiu Yin Hempel once  wrote that  “Tuxedo Park, one of America’s first planned communities was for decades synonymous with upper-class living….among its members the Vanderbilts, Astors, and Morgans…the Tuxedo jacket had its debut here.”

Once inside the stone gates of the park,  Michael Bruno will lead our trip through many private homes that evoke the Gilded Age. The sprawling estates owe their architectural inspiration to Tudor, Jacobean, Spanish Mission, and Gothic Revival styles (among others). The designers thoughtfully integrated each property into the hills surrounding a peaceful lake. Over lunch at the famous Tuxedo Club, a Tuxedo Park historian will recount the extravagant pastimes in which the community so often engaged.  Enjoy a wonderful boat ride on the lake, dinner in the gardens of the Valley Rock Inn and so much more on this unique, one-time experience.
