Celebrate Years of Modernism this Leap Year

Just a reminder that tomorrow, February 29, is a very special day; it only comes around once every four years and you can celebrate it by joining DWR Roslyn in tracing modernism on Long Island with a screening of the film "History Along the Turnpike: Levittown," by Richard Altamonte.
Levittown is known as the first modern suburb in America, producing some iconic architecture during its explosion of mid-century, postwar construction.
You won't want to miss the drawing for an iconic George Nelson Clock and a copy of Nelson's book, "How to See."
The film screening lasts 25 minutes and will begin promptly at 7pm and the invitation promises wine, cheese and lively conversation.
