Survey NYC's Architectural History, Icons, Skyscrapers, or New Developments.


New York City has a lot of buildings!

We can see the most famous ones, maybe go inside a few!

We can trace much of the history of New York City's buildings, starting with the Colonial era to the present.

For the ambitious, let's experience buildings and neighborhoods around New York City's boroughs beyond Manhattan, such as interesting developments in Brooklyn or Queens, Art Deco in the Bronx.

I have a real passion for this, and enthusiasm. I have taken architecture courses with some renowned professors. I also love sharing the stories and controversies of these buildings and developments.

I know great vistas and views and angles for great pictures of our favorite NYC architecture and you!
