Astoria's Living Landmark- George Kaufman

This is one landmark that will be hard to follow. Astoria’s own George Kaufman (founder of Kaufman Astoria Studios) will become an official living landmark next Wednesday Nov 4th, representing “the best of New York in talent, philanthropy and spirit”. With the recent publicity regarding the success of the Frank Sinatra School for the Arts it’s great to share a borough with such a distinguished presence.

NY,NY : On Wednesday, November 4th The New York Landmarks Conservancy will bestow its distinguished “Living Landmarks” award to six outstanding individuals for their contributions to New York at Cipriani 42nd Street at 7pm. This year’s distinguished recipients include the legendary New York County District Attorney Robert Morgenthau; Tony-Award winning prolific theatre man, Tommy Tune; the Italian Baroness and renowned philanthropist, Baroness Mariuccia-Marimo; noted playwright, author, screenwriter and “Newman’s Own” co-creator, A.E. Hotchner; real estate developer and film studio chief, George Kaufman; and renowned New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham.
