New to New York: Midtown in the 50s

With Matt Postal

[In-person tour] Examining recently-constructed projects on either side of Fifth Avenue, this walking tour with architectural historian Matt Postal includes a number of high-profile (and sometimes controversial) stops. Highlights include 53 West 53, a multi-spire residential tower by Jean Nouvel, the 53rd Street branch of the New York Public Library by Ten Arquitectos, Snohetta’s renovation of the landmarked AT&T building, which includes a redesigned and expanded public garden, as well as 425 Park Avenue by Foster + Partners.

For all tours, there are no refunds, cancellations, or exchanges unless we cancel a tour. Online registration closes one hour prior to the tour start time.
