TOUR: Art Deco from Murray Hill to Gramercy Park (Itinerary No. 3)

July 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$35

Sponsored by Untapped Cities – reservations required. Click here for information and registration.

Based on Itinerary No. 3 in New York Art Deco: A Guide to Gotham’s Jazz Age Architecture. 

This walk through the east side of Midtown South includes an unusual collection of buildings, each different from the next. We have a surprising modernist apartment building among the genteel town houses of Murray Hill; Ely Jacques Kahn’s most impressive office building (Two Park Avenue; and another Kahn building that’s no slouch); a work by Edgar Brandt, the great French iron master; the iconic Empire State Building; an incomplete attempt by Metropolitan Life to capture the Empire State Building’s “world’s tallest” title; and George and Edward Blum’s Gramercy House, with some of the most enjoyable Art Deco terra-cotta ornament in the city.
