History buffs have 73 booths of decorative housewares, furniture and tableaux to rifle through at this vintage art and antiques fair. Those enamored of Downton Abbey can verse themselves in the American corollary of the grand English estate—the Newport mansions—at the exhibit “Newport: The Glamour of Ornament” (on loan from the Preservation Society of Newport County in Rhode Island). There are also daily lectures, events and book signings, which have salacious titles such as “Lust & Love: The Eye Miniature in Georgian England.” Entrance proceeds benefit East Side House Settlement, a community nonprofit in the Bronx.
