View of the 1014 Building from the exterior.

Historian and author Tom Miller will give a history of the neighborhood and, specifically, of 1014 Fifth Avenue. Tom will detail the colorful families who lived here, as well as how life played out within the mansion for them and their servants. Included is the family of James W. Gerard, a prominent diplomat and attorney and the last Ambassador to Imperial Germany. 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.
