Guided Tour: Brooklyn Landscapes

July 13, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


This tour with architectural historian Francis Morrone and co-author of “Guide to New York City Urban Landscapes” (W.W. Norton, 2013) will look at three generations of Brooklyn landscapes. Cadman Plaza was created in the 1950s, at the time the largest downtown urban renewal project yet undertaken in America. The project utterly transformed downtown Brooklyn. MetroTech Center was a product of the 1980s, a unique attempt to create a combined university and corporate campus. Finally, Brooklyn Bridge Park has transformed Brooklyn’s waterfront between the Manhattan Bridge and Atlantic Avenue. Though not yet complete, enough has been done that we have a sense of the whole. We will only be able to see a portion of the park, but our route will take us across the dramatic Squibb Park Bridge. Please allow a little more than the usual two hours.
