** This tour does not go inside any of the mansions About Tom Miller Architectural and social historian Tom Miller is the author of Seeking New York, as well as the popular blog “Daytonian in Manhattan.” Since 2009 Tom has published a blog post on a different Manhattan location every day—now totaling more than 2,000. His research and reporting focus as much on the social histories of the buildings—the tragedies and sorrows, triumphs and scandals of the people who built and lived in the houses—as on their architecture and styles. Tom Miller’s retelling of these stories make the buildings come alive; and suddenly they are more than brick, marble and limestone, but the histories of real people.
