This is a chance to see rare images from their collection, dive into forgotten histories and be part of an exclusive, “only in New York” experience.

From the birth of photography through the modern age, with more than one million historic photographs, The Burns Archive is best known for providing photographic evidence of forgotten, hidden, and unseen aspects of history. They have published 49 books, curated numerous exhibitions, and contributed to hundreds of films and documentaries. Most famously, they’ve served as medical, historical and technical consultants on The Irishman and The Knick.

Where We’ll Be

This experience takes place in the secret lounge space at Von in the West Village. The Von has a quintessential Bowery speakeasy feel and makes for a perfect setting to host these never before seen archival images paired with a unique musical performance.

About Your Host

Hi. I’m Eric Grundhauser, Programming Lead for Atlas Obscura Experiences. I've been working and exploring with Atlas Obscura since we were just a handful of curiosity nerds working on a blog.

I've teamed up with a professional violinist living in New York City to bring this unique experience to NYC. She has played with all kinds of artists, from Miley Cyrus to Karen O, and living in this city has fostered her love of culture, music and adventure that we're excited to share with you!

For questions about this experience, please contact me directly through Airbnb.

What Else You Should Know

Upon entering Von, walk toward the back and turn right towards the hallway. Your host will be waiting between the main bar and the seating area to check you in. We have a private bar in the basement so there’s no need to grab a drink before entering.
