This three-hour walk traverses one of the worlds greatest thoroughfares 42nd Street to discuss architecture in New York City. Stretching from the East River to the Hudson River and cutting through the heart of Manhattan 42nd Street features major monuments of American 20th-century architecture from the Beaux-Arts Grand Central Station to the Art Deco Chrysler Building to the new skyscrapers that highlight a famous and transformed Times Square. The walk is led by a docent from our network who is either a practicing architect or scholar of architectural history and aims to give both an overview of the architectural history of the city and the fantastic ways that the human and built environments collide.
