Chicago Art Deco Society Magazine
New York City’s Landmarks:
From Manhattan to Staten Island
In the Fall 2015 issue of the Chicago Art Deco Society magazine, Kathleen M. Skolnik, an ADSNY member and author, wrote the article below that recaps the special day we had commemorating the 50th anniversary of the New York City Landmark Preservation Law on April 21st, 2015. Art Deco Landmarks: Unlikely Battles and Great Successes, led by Tony Robins, was a memorable marathon bus tour of Deco highlights in all five boroughs. A first hand account of this historic day appears is in the article below. Thanks to CADS President Mark Garzon for allowing the ADSNY to reprint this article.
