The historic Lower West Side of Manhattan includes the western section of the former Printing District, dubbed the “Glass Box District” of Hudson Square. Continuing below Canal Street, the tour enters TriBeCa and highlights contemporary construction both within and outside the jagged borders of the neighborhood’s disconnected historic districts.
Highlights include buildings by Winka Dubbledam of Archi-tectonics (497 Greenwich; 33 Vestry Street), Philip Johnson (Urban Glass House), Enrique Norten (1 York Street), Morris Adjmi (408 Greenwich), Dattner Architects (Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage), and Herzog & De Meuron (57 Leonard). A few interiors will be visited, including the magnificent art deco lobby of the former AT&T building by artist Hildreth Meiere and the postmodern TriBeCa Grand Hotel lobby by Bill Sofield.
Tours will run rain or shine. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour start time. Registration is limited to 15; walk-ups are not guaranteed a spot on the tour. Some tours utilize VOX amplification systems; attendees are welcome to bring their personal earbuds.
