NYC Walks 3: 57th Street Transect

NYC Walks: A Guide to New Architecture (Prestel, 2019) is a new guidebook by architecture critic and New York City historian John Hill of ten walking tours that highlight the best of New York City’s contemporary architecture. In celebration of the book’s publication, Open House New York and John Hill have organized a three-part series of tours that explore areas of the city with some of the city’s most notable new buildings and landscapes.

The 57th Transect tour traverses 57th Street, from Park Avenue to the Hudson River, to look at new development that has transformed one of New York’s most legendary cross-town streets. The tour will focus on the stretch from Park to Eighth Avenues, where a handful of new residential “supertalls” are making their mark on New York’s skyline, and consider the zoning and legal mechanisms that helped make these thousand-foot, skinny towers possible.
