March 2022 – Gilded Age Mansions Tour featured in The Boston Globe
Our guide Emma Guest-Consales developed an incredible tour that takes you up Fifth Avenue to see the stunning mansions that remain from the Gilded Age. The Boston Globe interviewed Emma for their article, “How to immerse yourself in ‘The Gilded Age’ of New York, or at least get a glimpse of it.”
“There was a change from building enormous mansions to building enormous luxury apartment buildings at the beginning of the early 1900s,” said Dr. Emma Guest-Consales, who leads Gilded Age architecture tours through the company Bowery Boys Walking History Tours. “The only thing guaranteed in New York City is that it’s always going to change, and that goes for these Gilded Age mansions as well. In the period right around World War I, and just after, it was no longer practical to sustain this kind of lifestyle and these kinds of houses. That’s when they started to disappear.”
