Financial District Deco Walking Tour

November 12, 2017

Architectural historian and Art Deco expert, Tony Robins, will lead us on a delightful tour of the Deco towers that have long made the fairytale skyline of Downtown Manhattan a symbol of the world’s first modern metropolis.

On this tour we will see more than a dozen stunning buildings that range from iconic skyscrapers to smaller but equally stylish Deco structures tucked between the towers of the Financial District.

Highlights will include unrivaled skyscraper designs such as Ralph Walker’s Gothic Modern fantasy of the Irving Trust tower, now known as 1 Wall Street and his equally stunning, Art Deco-encrusted Cities Service headquarters, now known as 70 Pine. As we walk we will also see prolific structures designed by Ely Jacques Kahn, better known for his buildings in the Garment Center; Shreve, Lamb & Harmon, architects of the Empire State Building; Louis Allen Abramson, designer of automats, hospitals, and synagogues; and a pair of buildings by Starrett & Van Vleck.
