East End Library ProgramsLeisurama of Montauk, Adults **Virtual** 

Tuesday, April 18, 1:00 – 2:00 PM

An Only in America story, particularly in the 1960’s, where anything, from landing a man on the moon, to buying a summer house in a department store, seemed possible.   Esperanza and Irwin explore the extraordinary history behind Leisurama of Montauk. The story starts with a piece of history: the 1959 “Kitchen Debate” between Soviet Premier Nikita Khruschev and Vice President Richard Nixon taking place in a…you guessed it…Leisurama Kitchen in the American National Exhibition in Moscow. The story moves to 1964 New York City, and the cast of characters include the modernist architect Andrew Geller, Marketing Director (and later Presidential Speechwriter and N.Y. Times columnist) William Safire and Montauk legend Frank Tuma.   Leisuramas were sold in Macy’s 3 flagship Herald Square store. While many of the original Leisuramas have been renovated beyond recognition, or replaced by larger homes entirely, the bones are still evident. Past and current real estate ads for Leisurama are contrasted to the original marketing plan, and the value of an intact Leisurama as a piece of history is discussed.
