The heart of the New-York Historical Society public programs is the
Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series. And on select
Friday evenings New-York Historical presents the Bernard and Irene
Schwartz Classic Film Series.
Through the generosity of Mr. Schwartz, New-York Historical has been
able to bring a wide array of extraordinary lectures and dynamic
conversations to New York’s Upper West Side. Our broad range of programs
feature topics in history and current affairs, highlights from current
exhibitions, film discussions, and musical performances.
