LES, SoHo, NoHo, East Village Tour

From hard knock slums to cosmopolitan hot spots the rise of the Lower East Side, Bowery, and SoHo is a fascinating history captured by the area’s architecture. Join us as we discover this history by looking at defining architectural typologies of these neighborhoods including the cast iron industrial spaces of Soho and tenement apartments of the LES as well stand-out contemporary buildings including the New Museum (SANAA, 2007), Prada flagship boutique (Rem Koolhas, 2001), and New York by Gehry (Frank Gehry, 2010).

This tour will award 4 AIA-CES credits for continuing education by the American institute of Architects
