TOUR: Art Deco in Washington Heights (Itinerary No. 11)

September 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sponsored by the Municipal Art Society. Reservations required. High up on a hill, its streets lined with modest but attractive six-story Art Deco apartment houses, Washington Heights has more in common with West Bronx neighborhoods just across the Harlem River than with the rest of Manhattan. Many of the same architects who worked on the Grand Concourse also designed apartment buildings on or near Fort Washington Avenue - we will see work by Horace Ginsbern, Jacob Felson, Israel Crausman, Miller and Goldhammer, Charles Kreymborg, and H. Herbert Lillien.
