What: The annual New York After Dark party hosted by the Director’s Council of the Museum of the City of New York and sponsored by Graff, Max Mara and Joy by Jean Patou.

Where: The Pool Room of the Four Seasons restaurant in New York.

When: Thursday, October 8th

Who: Nicole Hanley Mellon, Andrew Roosevelt and Alexia Hamm Ryan, all of whom were honored for their devotion to the museum, were joined by Chuck Scarborough, Tara Rockefeller, Dayssie Olarte de Kanavos, Nina Griscom and Dennis Basso.

Why: Besides the draw of raising funds for the circa 1923 museum’s future activities, there was also the event’s setting, the Four Seasons, long a bastion of power lunching and evening cocktailing. The restaurant’s lease is slated to end in July 2016 without a confirmed new location, a departure that had many guests preemptively grieving its loss.
