TOUR: Midtown Art Deco from Beekman Place to Rockefeller Center (Itinerary No. 6)
September 28, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$35
Starting on the far east side of Midtown at posh Beekman Place, we visit a handful of modernistic residences ranging from the fabulously wealthy River House to the more modestly middle-class Southgate apartments to the former Panhellenic Tower, a redoubt for young professional women taking on the big city in the 1920s. Pushing westward into the commercial heart of Midtown we visit the spectacular but lesser-known General Electric Building and continue with the Waldorf-Astoria, New York’s preeminent skyscraper hotel. We close with a brief look at Rockefeller Center, midtown Manhattan’s urbane urban wonderland.
