One To World Walk: Architecture Tour of the Upper East Side
November 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Upper East Side neighborhood has gained much of its international fame from movies and TV shows like Gossip Girl and Sex & the City. It's also home to glamorous landmarks such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 998 Fifth Ave, Park Avenue, and the Cherokee Apartments that we will be exploring on our walk. Our guide will share many stories about how NYC's history is etched into its buildings!
Our guide, William Singer, AIA, is the Chief Plan Examiner for The City of New York Department of Buildings and an expert in designing and constructing 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, an 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 and 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 the event of rain, this program will take place one week later on November 13th.
