TOUR: Art Deco on the Upper West Side: Broadway and Riverside Drive (Itinerary No. 9)

August 6 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

| $30 ($20 MAS members)

Sponsored by the Municipal Art Society. Reservations required – click here.

A meandering walk across the upper west tracts of the Upper West Side, from West 85th to 103rd streets, Broadway to Riverside Drive. We see work by such stalwart Manhattan Deco icons as Sugarman & Berger, Boak & Paris, and Harvey Wiley Corbett, as well as architects less well known for their Deco productions, including Emery Roth and Rosario Candela. Highlights include Roth’s Normandy Apartments and Corbett’s Master Apartments; the Broadway Fashion Building – four-stories of commercial space in a Moderne glass box; Joan of Arc Junior High School; Boak & Paris’s Midtown (now Metro) Theater; and one of Manhattan’s last surviving Horn & Hardart automat buildings, with splendid Art Deco terra-cotta. If you’ve taken my tour of Art Deco on Central Park West, and wondered what else might be out there closer to the Hudson, this is your chance to find out!
