In the late 1800s and early 1900s, lap dogs were extremely popular with socialites and starlets of stage and screen. Pet dogs were as much a status symbol for these wealthy ladies as were their diamonds and furs.
Peggy Gavan, a NYC licensed tour guide and author of The Cat Men of Gotham: Tales of Feline Friendships in Old New York, will virtually wind the audience through the streets of Old New York as she tells amazing stories of wealthy and eccentric women of the Gilded Age and the dogs they adored. Hear about:
• The monkey griffon that paved the way for the Plaza Hotel’s open pet policy
• The French poodle with a $1 million dog yard on Fifth Avenue
• The lap dogs, lion, and bear cub that lived at the Plaza Hotel
• The pampered French bulldogs that lived at the Gilsey House
Virtual tour; approx. 40 minutes, all ages
Event Registration is closed.
