Art Deco Upper-Upper West Side

(That's not a typo…)

With Anthony W. Robins

Join Anthony W. Robins for this walk across the tracts of the upper Upper West Side, from West 85th to 103rd streets, Broadway to Riverside Drive. 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.”
