150 Years of Architecture on The Bowery

Janes Walk

Led By Chien Dao, National Arts Club Architecture Committee

Beginning at St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery, we will discuss the historic significance of The Bowery, St. Mark’s, and its graveyard occupants including, Stuyvesant. We’ll indicate the original 2nd Ave Deli location & Veselka, then proceed to Stuyvesant Street & Copper Square to see Cooper Union & The Cube. Recent additions of residential and Cooper Union building will be seen, then the Public Theater building and the remaining parts of Colonnade Row. Then we will return to south of Cooper Union and spot where one can see 150 years of buildings from The Cooper Union, the Standard Hotel, new Thom Mayne Cooper Union Building, and The Village Voice. Finally we’ll head from Great Jones Street to the Fire House and end at Bond Street to discuss the historic context of the elite on Bond and the notable modern residential buildings.

Mostly accessible as we will be on the sidewalk. I have a full tour with detailed references I can email as a word doc.
