Join New York Adven­ture Club as we take an exclu­sive, behind-the-sce­nes look at the Pub­lic Design Com­mis­sion Archive, which main­tains an archive of projects reviewed by the Com­mis­sion since 1902, doc­u­ment­ing more than 7000 sites through­out New York City and pro­vid­ing a unique view into the his­to­ry of the City’s pub­lic works.

The Pub­lic Design Com­mis­sion is New York City’s design review agen­cy, with juris­dic­tion over per­ma­nent struc­tures, parks, and open spaces, streetscapes, sig­nage, and art pro­posed on or over City-owned prop­er­ty. Con­tain­ing orig­i­nal doc­u­ments, draw­ings, pho­tographs, and archi­tec­tural plans, the Archive informs the Commission’s review of cur­rent projects and pro­vides a valu­able resource to researchers.
