The 1908 building was the home of the Roebling-Stirn family and designated a New York City Landmark Building in 2001. The Stirn Mansion is listed on the New York State and National Register of Historic Places, renamed "Casa Belvedere" in 2008 meaning "house with a beautiful view."

Opera & Lunch
I Vespri Siciliani (The Sicilian Vespers) is Giuseppe Verdi’s 19th opera and based on an historical event that occurred in Palermo in 1282. Verdi enhances this Romantic Era story with patriotic passion allowing audiences to relate to its characters and their struggles even as we are entertained. It has a wealth of melodic and dramatic opportunity for all the main characters. This particular production is a truly “Italian” operatic experience for those who love Verdi and great operatic singing.
Three-Course Lunch including wine & soft drinks.
