Telling the Art Deco Story of Inwood (Online Event)
Our Telling the Art Deco Stories of our Neighborhood’s online series continues so now you can virtually visit New York’s wonderful Art Deco enclaves with the Art Deco Society of New York––from anywhere.
ADSNY is excited to offer this not-to-be-missed event exploring a neighborhood that we’ve never featured before! This NEW online tour will showcase the Art Deco treasures of Inwood and will highlight how the neighborhood boasts an unexpectedly large concentration of Art Deco gems.
In this web-based tour led by architectural historian, Matt Postal, we’ll learn what makes this community perched atop Manhattan’s northern tip so special. Like many neighborhoods outside of central Manhattan, Inwood was rural until the arrival of new subway lines dramatically transformed the area in the early 1930s.
From the Cloisters in Ft. Tryon Park to West 218th Street, this virtual tour will give an in-depth look at:
- Apartment houses designed by the architects Boak & Paris, Horace Ginsbern, George G. Miller, among others
- Distinctive lobby designs, particularly the pink streamlined interior of 91 Payson Avenue
- The Elsie Driggs – Lee Gatch Algonquin mural at 165 Seaman Avenue
- The WPA boathouse and park furnishings that punctuate Inwood Hill Park
- A monumental late Deco bank by Halsey, McCormack & Helmer
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.
