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 not quite half a dozen Deco marvels: the Daily News Building, the Chrysler Building, the Chanin Building, the General Electric Building and the RCA (now Comcast) tower at Rockefeller Center.
