The Architecture of Literacy in the Bronx

Libraries, schools, and more, both old and new

With Jean Arrington

Join us for an exploration of literacy-related architecture in the Fordham and University Heights sections of the Bronx. We’ll look at public schools designed by Charles B. J. Snyder, and the campus designed for New York University in the 1890s by Stanford White (now Bronx Community College), with the early-20th-century tourist attraction, the Hall of Fame. Modern buildings include ones by Marcel Breuer and Robert A. M. Stern.
