PRO CIRCLE MEMBERS RSVP HERE

The New York Landmarks Conservancy is very pleased to offer its Professional Circle members an exclusive tour with Frank J. Prial Jr., Principal of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners and Glenn Boornazian and Jennifer Schork, Partners of Integrated Conservation Resources & Integrated Conservation Contracting, of The Morgan Library & Museum.

In June 2022 the Morgan completed the first comprehensive exterior restoration of the library that J. Pierpont Morgan commissioned from architect Charles Follen McKim. This American Renaissance masterpiece, completed in 1906, is the historic heart of the Morgan Library & Museum. The restoration addresses weathering, deterioration, and minor cracking of architectural and decorative elements; stone soiling; losses in the thin masonry joints; deterioration of metalwork; and vulnerabilities in the roof and drainage system.

In conjunction with the restoration, the Morgan is undertaking site enhancements to reinvigorate the southern portion of its campus and provide visitor access to the grounds for the first time in the institution’s history. Developed by award-winning landscape designer Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, the garden will create an accessible route from the Morgan’s interior to the 36th Street site and a new, inviting space for tours and programs.

The New York Landmarks Conservancy is an AIA Continuing Education Provider and this lecture will be submitted for AIA credit approval.

Please note: you must be enrolled in our Professional Circle to attend.
