Lecture: Art Deco Metropolis: The Whiz-Bang Buildings of Modern New York

Thursday, May 4, 2017
6:30pm 8:30pm
The Bellevue Club

The Chrysler Building, the Waldorf-Astoria, Rockefeller Center–these are among the hundreds of Art Deco monuments that during the 1920s and ‘30s helped create the image of New York City as the world’s Modern Metropolis.

In New York, Art Deco evolved through a series of Manhattan skyscrapers into the city’s chief architectural language. Following a massive reawakening of interest in them during the 1970s, New York’s Deco buildings today survive as prized remnants of a distant yet modern past that still help define the city’s visual identity. From the great skyscrapers to apartments, diners, hotels, department stores, banks, and theaters, Anthony Robins will show us the sights!

Mr. Robins’ book, Art Deco New York, will be available for sale and signing.

No-host cocktail hour at 6:30 pm; lecture begins at 7:30 pm

$10 for ADSC members; $15 for non-members
