What was the Barbizon Hotel? Long a female-only residential hotel, it granted 20th-century women a new level of freedom to pursue careers, romance, adventure, and independence. Join author and historian Paulina Bren, in conversation with New-York Historical’s Valerie Paley, as they discuss the “modern women” who took up residence in one of New York’s most glamorous buildings.
