Trinity Church at Wall Street & Broadway, at the temporary entrance on the north side of the Church. 

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 variety of public spaces generated by zoning incentives to make the congested financial district more pedestrian-friendly, including“Skid(more) Row” (Chase Manhattan Plaza, 140 Broadway and One Liberty Plaza). The effect of zoning on the shaping of skyscrapers will also be discussed, as will the conversion of many of these skyscrapers for residential use. Highlights include buildings by SOM, Kevin Roche, Philip Johnson, Davis Brody, and Tsao & McKown, among others.  Downtown Manhattan’s signature spires of the 1930s will also be viewed en route.

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.
