TOUR: Art Deco tour – TriBeCa and Civic Center

September 24 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$20 - $30

Sponsored by the Municipal Art Society. Reservations required ($30, but $20 for MAS members). Click here for information and registration.

This tour begins at the edge of the financial district and continues into the Civic Center with the Federal Post Office, a WPA product of the Modern Classic; and three remarkable municipal buildings at the northern tip of the Foley Square courts district: the New York State Building, the Health, Hospitals and Sanitation Building and the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse. Star architect of the walk is Ralph Walker, designer of three communications-related behemoths: the delightfully decorative New York Telephone Company headquarters, the ponderously massive Western Union Building, and the Long Lines Building which is both massive and decorative.
