The Little Pillbox Hat Tour - Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Architectural Preservation
From quietly influencing the powerful people she was surrounded with, to outright personal action, JKO fought to advance an enlightened cultural agenda inspired by her storied upbringing. Join me to learn about the very important role that our most unforgettable First Lady played in defining good taste, high culture, and the importance of preserving the livability and distinctive architectural character of American cities. We will visit buildings associated with her charmed and often not-so-charmed existence, and consider her very important advocacy work in shaping and preserving New York. Tour meets in front of Pershing Square Cafe across from Grand Central Terminal, and ends at the Plaza Hotel at 5th Ave./59th St.. Tour participants are encouraged to wear a Pillbox Hat, oversized sunglasses, or 60s/70s gear!
