One To World Walk: Architecture Tour Around Medieval Manhattan

August 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$16.00

Get ready to immerse yourself in New York City this semester in a unique way you wouldn't be able to find through a Google Search! One To World has organized 4 exclusive architecture-themed walking tours of different areas of Manhattan and our first stop is downtown Manhattan in the financial district! We will learn about how the Dutch colonial era has left its mark on the oldest part of NYC.

 

While walking the circumference of New Amsterdam as it existed in 1664, we will also gain insight into why it is much harder to navigate downtown Manhattan compared to the rest of NYC, above Houston Street. This is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the city in a new and exciting way, all while making new friends in the process!

 

Our guide, William Singer, AIA, is the Chief Plan Examiner for The City of New York Department of Buildings and an expert in the design and construction of large-scale public facilities. His major projects have included justice centers, transportation hubs, and cultural centers. Before joining the Department of Buildings he was a partner at Gruzen Samton, a NYC & Virginia-based architecture, planning, interior design and systems engineering firm. A Fulbright fellow (Slovenia, 1993-94), he holds a Master of Architecture degree from the School of Design at North Carolina State University, as well as a Master of Arts in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2004, Singer received a City of New York Arts Commission Excellence in Design for the renovation design of El Museo Del Barrio.

 

In case of rain, the event will be held one week later on August 28th.
