About the Event:
We are thrilled to announce that Anthony W. Robins – who has led ADSNY’s walking tours since 1982 – has finally put it all down on paper in New York Art Deco: A Guide to Gotham’s Jazz Age Architecture, the first guidebook solely devoted to New York City’s Deco treasures. Join ADSNY for a special evening when Robins presents an illustrated talk exploring the city’s hidden Deco gems.
The Chrysler Building, the Waldorf-Astoria, Rockefeller Center– these are among the hundreds of Art Deco monuments that during the 1920s and ‘30s helped create the image of New York City as the world’s Modern Metropolis. The lecture covers the great skyscrapers of architects Raymond Hood, William Van Alen, Ely Jacques Kahn and Ralph Walker, including the Daily News, Empire State, Irving Trust, General Electric, American Radiator, Barclay-Vesey and RCA Buildings. It then traces the adaptation of this “skyscraper style” in every other building type throughout the five boroughs.
