Facade of an historic mansion on 82nd street.

Author and historian Tom Miller will conduct a walking tour within a one-block area. Miller will discuss the history of the neighborhood, the architecture of individual mansions, and the lifestyles, scandals and other details of the families who lived in them. Included are the massive Benjamin Duke mansion, the opulent residence where con-man Joseph H. Hoadley and his wife managed to life essentially for free for more than a decade, and the home of millionaire department store mogul Henry Seigel, who was driven to bankruptcy and prison by his wife's exorbitant spending. Tom Miller moved to New York City in 1979 from Dayton, Ohio, bringing with him a passion for buildings. He currently holds the rank of deputy inspector within the NYPD’s Auxiliary Police Force. In 2009 he started a blog, “Daytonian in Manhattan”, which has now reviewed over a thousand buildings, statues, and other points of interest.
