Art Deco on the Upper East Side: A Walking Tour

The Upper East Side maintains an aura of conservative respectability, and perhaps as a result never attracted as much Art Deco flash as other areas in New York City. Nevertheless, tucked among the Beaux-Arts town houses and sedate neo-Georgian apartment buildings, the neighborhood has some remarkable examples by some of the city’s best architects of the period, including an apartment house by Raymond Hood (of Rockefeller Center fame); one of Manhattan’s very few Art Deco town houses, by Henry Allen Jacobs; the elegant Carlyle Hotel; and one of the first Art Deco apartment buildings in New York City. Guiding the group will be author and lecturer Anthony W. Robins, who has been leading tours of the city’s architectural wonders for over 25 years.
