In this illustrated talk presented at Cooper Hewitt, historian Keith Taillon will take us through a history of the mansion built by Andrew Carnegie, the current home of the museum, placed within the greater timeline of New York City's rapid growth and transformation during the period known as the Gilded Age (approximately 1870–1910). Why was it built here and when? What was the neighborhood like before Carnegie's arrival? .
