New York City’s extensive wealth of Art Deco architecture and design, both iconic and lesser known, makes it the best city to explore the splendor of this style. We are currently creating a comprehensive registry of New York Art Deco buildings throughout the five boroughs to aid in the exploration and preservation of our Art Deco and Moderne treasures. You can utilize the New York Art Deco Registry & Map to create your own walking tours, view Deco in your area and so much more. We also invite you to participate in this exciting resource. If you know of a building that should be added, please contact us at Registry@ArtDeco.org.
In the spring of 2015, we launched our Documenting Deco outreach program for New York City students in classroom-based, extended day, or community based settings. This program provides young people with the tools to understand, appreciate and take pride in their surroundings, to discover Art Deco gems in their own neighborhoods, to better understand the importance of preservation and the landmarking process, and to be introduced to careers in a variety of related fields. For more information on this program please email us at Learn@ArtDeco.org.
Our website is intended to provide comprehensive resources on all things Deco. We have many tools to aid in your exploration of the Art Deco movement in New York and around the globe. You can find articles on what Art Deco is, Origins and Influences of Art Deco, an Art Deco Book List to help you find resources that match your Deco interests, and so much more. We hope that you will enjoy exploring our website. If you would like to learn more about the Art Deco Society of New York or Art Deco in general, please contact us at Info@ArtDeco.org.
