Lowy’s state-of-the-art conservation studio is housed on the top floor of our six-story brownstone on East 80th Street in Manhattan.  Our conservators work in an environment that provides an abundance of unobstructed natural light, facilitating ideal cleaning and inpainting conditions. We have two large hot vacuum tables for structural work, a cleaning table with proper ventilation, a varnish booth and a water filtration system for works on paper, along with other current and constantly changing tools required for art conservation. We offer a tours of our facilities upon request.

Two Minutes with Lowy Conservation

Lowy has known of this wonderful establishment for years.  The owners, Beatrice & Julio, have cared for this establishment and it's customers for almost 20 years.  Their personalities are every bit a part of the decor - as warm and friendly as "old" New York gets. That environment is now magnified with three antique framed mirrors from Julius Lowy.
The Italian translation for "il posto accanto" is "the place next door".  In 1995 Beatrice began plating her combination of rich ingredients with loving preparation in NYC. Il Posto Accanto is an elegantly decorated wine bar with an extensive Italian small plates menu served by a friendly a knowledgeable staff. They stock a large variety of Italian wines and offer them in a casual bar atmosphere, perfect for a night out with friends or an after-work drink.

Lowy participated in Lenox Hill's Spring Gala benefiting the Lenox Hill Neighborhood house at Cipriani 42nd Street. The Lenox Hill Neighborhood house offers an array of programs and activities benefitting individuals in all kinds of need ranging in age from 3 to 103 located here in Manhattan. The Gala, honoring Board President Thomas J. Edelman, welcomed over six hundred New Yorkers for dinner and dancing and featured table tops individually created by designers including Lowy’s own Rebecca Vicars.
Rebecca created a beautiful table for the event with the theme of “Tulipomania” featuring some of our antique frames with mirrors in them. She tells the story of a Turkish Sultan who became obsessed with tulips featuring them in his garden with light and through mirrors. Emily Thompson Flowers created the beautiful tulip arrangement. The table, complete with a suzani from the 19th century, featured chargers from Mottahedeh and place card holders from L’Objet. We had a blast at the event and look forward to supporting the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in the future.
