Skyscraper National Park: Financial District Transformed

With Matt Postal

[In-person tour] After the Second World War, Lower Manhattan reinvented itself. What resulted was boldly ambitious, especially construction of the World Trade and World Financial Centers. This walk with architectural historian Matt Postal examines the acclaimed individual projects preceeded the so-called Twin Towers, such as the former headquarters of Chase Manhattan and Marine Midland Banks, both designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. We’ll also take a close look at Water and South Streets, where a varied group of Miesian and Brutalist office towers are being converted to residential use.
