The Little Pillbox Hat Experience: A Virtual Walking Tour

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the Preservation of Our Architectural Treasures

From quietly influencing the powerful people she was surrounded with, to outright personal action, JKO fought to advance an enlightened cultural agenda inspired by her storied upbringing. Join acclaimed NYC Tour Guide Deborah Zelcer to see the very important role that one of our most unforgettable First Ladies played in defining good taste, high culture, and the importance of preserving the livability and distinctive architectural character of American cities. We will visit buildings associated with her charmed and often not-so-charmed existence, reliving the excitement of the Kennedy/Onassis years.

This online virtual tour will be presented in two sessions, lasting approximately an hour and a quarter each. We will send you the Zoom link prior to each of the two event days. 

Feel free to channel the era and wear a Pillbox hat, oversized sunglasses, or any other Jackie O-inspired apparel!

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is presenting this program in partnership with the Sid Jacobson JCC.
