Tour: Central Park as a Work of Art

May 22, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
$55

Perhaps best-known of New York's official "Scenic Landmarks," Central Park offers New Yorkers refuge, recreation and rejuvenation; a temporary haven from a city of brick and steel, concrete and glass. And yet this park which delights us with its lakes and streams, wildflowers and grand open spaces, is almost entirely artificial, carefully designed right down to the hidden pipes feeding a rustic waterfall.

TOUR: Art Deco on the Upper East Side (Itinerary No. 10)

August 4, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Sponsored by the Municipal Art Society. Reservations required. The Upper East Side—Manhattan’s Gold Coast—maintains an aura of conservative respectability, and perhaps as a result never attracted as much Art Deco flash as its counterpart on the west side of Central Park. Nevertheless, tucked among the Beaux-Arts town houses and sedate neo-Georgian apartment buildings, the neighborhood has some remarkable examples by some of the best architects.

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

September 22, 2019 @ 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.
