About the event:
The Paterno family monogrammed most of the apartment houses they built with treasured Manhattan architects Gaetan Ajello and Rosario Candela. Why? Let’s explore that question as we take a virtual tour around the Upper West and East Sides visiting the nearly 40 Paterno family structures that are adorned with various letters of the alphabet. Great-granddaughter of Dr. Charles V. Paterno, Carla Golden, will decode the monograms and share with you her theories on why not all Ajello- and Candela-designed Paterno buildings are embellished with personalized ornamentation. A brief family history and building portfolio overview will initiate our discussion.
