Students will enjoy two feasts for the eyes and also a box lunch in this daytime walking tour in the upper East Side.  From 11am to 12pm, a Central Park docent will guide students through the hidden wonders of the Conservatory Garden at Fifth Avenue and 105th Street.  This secluded six-acre oasis in Central Park, just inside of the Vanderbilt Gate, contains three formal gardens planted in the classical French, Italian, and English styles, and derives its name from the 1898 glass conservatory that once stood there.  The gardens boast heirloom roses, formal hedges, and a myriad of colorful flowering perennials, shrubs, and trees.  After the tour, students will have a boxed lunch at the Museum of the City of New York, across the street; menu choices will be provided in advance to registered students.  Then, from 2 to 3 pm, a museum docent will lead students through After the War: Photographs by Todd Webb, 1945-1960.  Opening in April 2017, this special exhibition will examine Post-World War II New York through the eyes — and lens — of photographer Todd Webb.  As a recently discharged Navy veteran, Webb moved to New York in 1945 to dedicate a year to photographing the city.  Armed with a camera and tripod, he ambitiously set out to understand the city that had enthralled him as a visitor, ultimately creating a body of work that would launch his career as a serious photographer.  In these early years, Webb became a close friend and protégé of Alfred Stieglitz and associated with many of the greatest minds in photography, including Beaumont Newhall, Edward Steichen, Berenice Abbott, and Harry Callahan.
