Episode 8: Two Ugly Buildings

EWe can learn a lot from great architecture, but what can we learn from architecture that is, frankly, disastrous? In today’s episode, Dan and David visit twomiserable attempts at majesty: the David M. Dinkins Manhattan Municipal Building and the Surrogate’s Courthouse, both on the corner of Centre and Chambers Streets, downtown, and in the process learn some interesting lessons about the ambitions and self-regard of New York in early 20th Century.

Episode 7: Brownstone Manhattan

Episode 6: Central Park

EThe most famous park in the world? Maybe. Inevitable stop on the Manhattan tourist trail? Absolutely. But Central Park is also an amazing laboratory for a 150-year-old experiment in urban planning and social identity, and the masterpiece of America’s first (and probably only) superstar landscape architect. Scenic vistas! Hot dogs! Gentrification! Paternalism! This place really has it all.

Our own Dan London was there in the thick of it. In this episode Dan goes back to Zuccotti to remember howit became,for a moment, the most radical place in America. Special thanks to Chris Rael (https://www.chrisrael.com/) for our closing music.
