Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

Book Talk: "Bricks & Brownstone: The New York Row House"

12 November 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Organized by: Brooklyn Historical Society
Venue: Brooklyn Historical Society
128 Pierrepont St.

When originally published in 1972, Bricks & Brownstone sparked a revival and reappraisal of New York’s brownstone architecture, serving as a harbinger for both the preservation movement and demographic shifts that would redefine Brooklyn’s brownstone belt. Join Patrick Ciccone, coauthor of the newly updated, re-released volume, as he illustrates how a brown Triassic-Jurassic sandstone captured the imagination of nineteenth century architects and masons, and continues to define the public streetscape for countless New Yorkers today. Ciccone’s presentation will be followed by a conversation contextualizing the last five decades of brownstone communities with architectural historian Fran Leadon.
