Art Deco architecture can be found in all five boroughs, but the largest single concentration of major Deco monuments runs along 42nd Street from 1st to 9th Avenues. The star architect of this walk is crusty modernist Raymond Hood. Participants will visit three of his four New York skyscrapers: the red-and-white-striped Daily News, the black-and-gold American Radiator, and the blue-green terra-cotta clad McGraw-Hill. 

Along the way, guests will also visit the Chanin Building with its Rene Chambellan-designed abstract ornamentation, and the peerless Chrysler Building, the city’s (and the world’s) most famous Art Deco skyscraper. Additional stops will be made at lesser-known delights, including the little-visited cluster of the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design and the Beaux-Arts Apartments on East 44th Street, which are Art Deco in style despite their names.
