A favorite NYC landmark building of mine is located at West 44th Street and 5th Avenue. It is the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen's home: a venerable 225 year old organization that promotes the trades. The Mechanics Institute and the General Society Library are significant components of the General Society's dedication to education and knowledge. The superb Artisan Series, which brings to the public the art and craftsmanship the General Society wholeheartedly supports, and lectures regarding the building industry are marvelous. Like her father Past President Gerard A. Dengel (1982), current President Victoria Dengel works selflessly to increase the excellent standards of the General Society in every area of its scope. I am proud to be a member of this remarkable Society.
