City College

Exploring the Uptown Campus

With Dalton Whiteside

The City College of New York (CCNY) dates back to 1847 as America’s first provider of free public higher education. The campus moved to Hamilton Heights in 1907,and later built a stadium (Lewisohn Stadium) and annexed the nearby Hebrew Orphan Asylum, Episcopal Protestant Orphan Asylum, and Convent of the Sacred Heart. On this special late afternoon tour with City College graduate and campus architectural historian, Dalton Whiteside, we will explore the college’s vibrant Neo-Gothic campus, through the Modern central campus to the newly renovated South Campus, the former convent grounds. We will conclude the tour on the roof of the Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, with a stunning view of the city skyline. It’s sure to be an educational adventure! (Discount coupons for local restaurants will be provided, so plan to stay in the neighborhood for dinner!)
