Event Details

Meet at Water St. & Pine St., in plaza south of Wall Street Plaza (88 Pine St.) 

While the Financial District is widely known for its historic architecture, it also boasts a variety of distinctive Modern buildings, many of them linked to urban design initiatives of the 1960s and ‘70s. This tour will focus on the Water Street corridor, once planned to be the route of the Second Avenue Subway, emphasizing the variety of public spaces created through urban design efforts initiated by the Office of Lower Manhattan Development under NYC Mayor John Lindsay.

New construction in the vicinity of the Staten Island ferry, and recent improvements on the East River waterfront, as well as examples of historic preservation, reconstruction, and adaptive reuse will also be included. Highlights include work by Pei Cobb Freed, Emery Roth & Sons, SHOP, Frederic Schwartz Marvel Architects, Hanrahan Meyers and Ken Smith, among others.
