AIA Guide to New York City-Launch Party

I’m honored to be speaking at the joint New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects/Oxford University Press celebration of the fifth edition of this classic guidebook to the city’s architecture.

The event is being held at the Center for Architecture, at 536 La Guardia Place in Manhattan between 6pm and 8pm on June 2nd.  I’ll be saying a few introductory words about Elliot Willensky, the co-author of the original guides with Norval White, who was a good family friend and who gave me the best introduction to the city anyone could possibly ask for. (See my essay on Elliot on the AIA’s New York City chapter website eOculus.) Admission is free, but you need to RSVP with the Center first.

Elliot Willensky, doing what he loved best, 1979.
