Adaptive Re-Use of Historic Architecture in Manhattan

With James Russiello

[Virtual tour] In “The Death and Life of Great American Cities,” Jane Jacobs wrote: “Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.” Join historic preservationist James Russiello on a virtual tour on the buildings throughout the borough that lived to see another use and another day. Learn about the context of their construction, subsequent history, reuse process, design, and the factors that went into their conversions, as well as their ultimate fates. And hear about the notable individuals who through their tenancy contributed and shaped the significance of the building and districts.
