As the founder and writer of The New York Times’ “Streetscapes” column, architectural historian Christopher Gray wrote more than 1,450 articles between 1987 and 2014 in which he lovingly highlighted New York City’s everyday buildings with his characteristically wry sense of humor. Gray’s passion for exploring the city’s design also prompted him to create the Office for Metropolitan History in 1975, a research site committed to bringing together disparate sources in individual collections about city buildings, thereby making their history more accessible to everyone, from tenants to scholars. To honor the passing of Christopher Gray (1950-2017), join us for a conversation with his friends and colleagues about his work and lasting legacy.

Speakers: Mike Leahy, longtime editor of Gray’s “Streetscapes” column at The New York Times; Francis Morrone, architectural historian; Suzanne Stevens, deputy editor of Architectural Record; and Paul Goldberger (moderator), contributing editor at Vanity Fair.
