Cram and Goodhue in New York

With Francis Morrone

[Virtual tour] Join historian and guide Francis Morrone for a virtual tour of all the buildings in the five boroughs by two of America’s greatest architects, Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue (1869-1924) and Ralph Adams Cram (1863-1942.) From 1891, after they’d met in the fascinating artistic and bohemian circles of Boston, to 1914 they were partners, and their New York work includes the great St. Thomas Church on Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street. In 1914, they went their own ways. Goodhue on his own gave us such notable works as St. Bartholomew’s Church on Park Avenue and the Church of the Intercession on Broadway and 155th Street, while Cram gave us Christ Church on Park Avenue and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. (Warning: This talk will be heavy on churches.) But along with these famous buildings, the two were also responsible for many lesser-known works that will also be included in this talk.

Registration is now closed.
