Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
The phrase “Art Deco New York” generally conjures romantic images of Manhattan skyscrapers. But just as remarkable as the towers are their sumptuous interiors – which are also far more comfortable to visit on a cold winter’s day. On this tour with author and historian Anthony W. Robins, we’ll visit the publicly accessible interiors of major Deco marvels: the Daily News Building, the Chrysler Building, and the International Building and RCA (now Comcast) tower at Rockefeller Center. Mr. Robins is the author of the award-winning book, “New York Art Deco: A Guide to Gotham’s Jazz Age Architecture.”
