“Scenes from the Legendary Steinway Piano Factory” by Carolina Velez

Monday May 29 at 1- 3 P.M.

GAHS has conducted nearly 20,000 people on the legendary public tours at the Steinway & Sons factory for almost 20 years. Publications as varied as Readers Digest and Forbes Magazine state that is it one of the most outstanding such tours in the county.

The late Henry Z Steinway, former company chairman (and GAHS member) used to tell us ‘we are the only ones who get the story right!’

Last year we had an opportunity to guide photographer Carolina Velez on an assignment to document the production process. We asked Ms. Velez to share some of her photos with our community for an exhibit.

This program is supported by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.

Additional support provided by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society.
