An Architectural History of New York City

July 2 - August 6, 2020

92Y invites you to join architectural historian and author Francis Morrone online for a brisk and broad-ranging history of New York City’s rich architecture.

From Dutch settlement, through today, New York City has been home to some of the world’s most recognizable and influential buildings and streetscapes. Dive into the styles, from Colonial to Victorian to Beaux-Arts to Art Deco; designers including Richard Upjohn, McKim, Mead & White, Bertram Goodhue, and Ralph Walker; and evolving concepts from the street grid to public parks to waterfront development that continue to impact our everyday lives. Often neglected but highly significant contributions by women and minority architects and builders (from Julian Francis Abele to the remarkable women who completely reimagined urban living in the 1920s) will be highlighted along with more recent works by architects including mid-century master Natalie de Blois.

This survey course will introduce you to “the world’s city” as Morrone provides insight into the histories behind the myriad coexisting architectural styles, often found together on a single block, that form the unique landscape of New York City.

This six-session course takes place online Thursdays, July 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, and August 6, from 1 pm - 2:30 pm ET. Registration $210.

Francis Morrone is the author of thirteen books, including Guide to New York City Urban Landscapes (W.W. Norton, 2013) and, with Henry Hope Reed, The New York Public Library: The Architecture and Decoration of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (W.W. Norton, 2011), as well as architectural guidebooks to Philadelphia and to Brooklyn. He was for six and a half years an art and architecture critic for the New York Sun. He is the recipient of the Arthur Ross Award of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, of the Landmarks Lion Award of the Historic Districts Council, and of NYU's Excellence in Teaching Award.
