Telling the Art Deco Story of Brighton Beach
We are excited to take our Telling the Art Deco Stories of our Neighborhood’s programs digital so that you can explore New York’s wonderful Art Deco enclaves with the Art Deco Society of New York––from anywhere!
Sign up today to join us on a web-based, virtual “tour”, led by architectural historian, Matt Postal, that will lead us through the many remarkable Art Deco buildings of the enclave that is Brighton Beach.
A closer examination into the interwar past of this neighborhood, on the Coney Island peninsula, shows it to be one of the city’s top destinations for Art Deco explorers. As we stroll through this Art Deco Mecca we will discover residential and commercial buildings that rival those found in the more well known Grand Concourse neighborhood in The Bronx. Like its Bronx counterpart, Brighton Beach is filled with magnificent examples of the modern architectural vocabulary that we know today as Art Deco. As we will see in this online program, there are stunning interior spaces behind many of these beautifully preserved façades that we will have a chance to “visit.”
Even though this tour is online, it will include a live PowerPoint—with wonderful images that you will be able to see directly on your computer screen, tablet, or mobile device—as well as a Q&A session with participants.
Not able to join us at the time of the event? No problem! Those who register will receive a recording of the entire program a few days after the live presentation. When you sign up for the program you have the opportunity to watch, or rewatch, the recording at a time more convenient for your schedule.
