New York, NY On June 20th, the Young Men’s/Women’s Real Estate Association of New York (YM/WREA) along with member Cindy Farkas Glanzrock of Glanzrock Curatorial Services curated and coordinated with Silverstein Properties to host a downtown art and architecture tour for YM/WREA members and guests.
