Art Deco on the Upper Upper West Side

With Anthony W. Robins

[In-person Tour] Join Anthony W. Robins for this walk across the tracts of the upper Upper West Side, from the mid 80s to the low 100s. We see work by such stalwart Manhattan Deco icons as Sugarman & Berger, Boak & Paris, and Harvey Wiley Corbett, as well as architects less well known for their Deco productions, including Emery Roth and Rosario Candela. Highlights include Roth’s Normandy Apartments and Corbett’s Master Apartments; the Broadway Fashion Building – four-stories of commercial space in a Moderne glass box; Boak & Paris’s Midtown (now Metro) Theater; and one of Manhattan’s last surviving Horn & Hardart automat buildings, with splendid Art Deco terra-cotta. If you’ve taken our tour of Art Deco on Central Park West, and wondered what else might be out there closer to the Hudson, this is your chance to find out. Mr. Robins is the author of “New York Art Deco: A Guide to Gotham’s Jazz Age Architecture.”

MAS in-person tours take place outdoors, therefore masks are not required. If you prefer to wear a mask, though, we want you to feel comfortable doing so.
