Interior, Lockwood-Mathews Mansion

A National Historic Landmark since 1971, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is regarded as one of the earliest and most significant Second Empire Style country houses in the United States. Built by renowned financier and railroad baron LeGrand Lockwood between 1864 and 1868, the Mansion, with its unparalleled Gilded Age interiors and furniture, illustrates magnificently the beauty and splendor of the Victorian Era.

Downton Abbey has audiences visiting this landmark often asking about its servants and their lodgings.

The Mansion‘s domestic servants’ rooms “equal the chambers of a first class hotel,” said The New York Sun in 1869.

LeGrand Lockwood’s forward-thinking spirit behind these quarters offered momentary repose from the physical demands of a seven-day work week and 10-hour shifts for those living under the same roof as the family. By following the servants’ paths through the mansion. visitors will experience three distinct worlds—public, family. and service—and the social etiquette strictly enforced during the mansion’s seven decades as a private residence.

March 24, 2016 — Trip to Whitney Museum in NYC
with lunch at the Spice Market Restaurant

The Whitney Museum of American Art – known informally as the “Whitney” – is an art museum located in Manhattan. It was founded in 1931 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875–1942), a wealthy and prominent American socialite and art patron after whom the museum is named.

The Whitney focuses on 20th- and 21st-century American art. Its permanent collection comprises more than 21,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, videos, and artifacts of new media by more than 3,000 artists. It places a particular emphasis on exhibiting the work of living artists for its collection as well as maintaining an extensive permanent collection containing many important pieces from the first half of the last century. The museum’s Annual and Biennial exhibitions have long been a venue for younger and less well-known artists whose work is showcased there.

The Spice Market Restaurant in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District is a Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant that serves gourmet food in a casual atmosphere.
