First, a letter from Julian & Alex

December 12, 2016

Dear friends of the Four Seasons:


For 57 years, the Four Seasons has been an international legend, an only-in-Manhattan oasis, and a magical, serendipitous discovery for anyone who has ever walked in unaware of what an architectural and culinary gem it was and will be again.


This documentary, capturing the last few months at 52nd Street and delving into our first 57-years, is very special to us. We are thrilled that the filmmakers decided to tell our story and that many cornerstone moments of the Four Seasons at the Seagram Building were captured on video.


We are so happy that the New-York Historical Society agreed to become the Fiscal Sponsor, making it possible for anyone to support the production with a tax deductible contribution. The Four Seasons has meant so much, to so many, for so long. We look forward to seeing this exciting glimpse into our past together, with all our wonderful patrons and friends as we prepare to welcome you into our new home at 280 Park Avenue next spring.


Sincerely,


Julian Niccolini & Alex von Bidder

Partners and Managing Directors

help us make history!
