You will see how these changes will effect what would happen on its avenues over time. The mysteries of how and why a neighborhood will transform, how what once was and what would be will influence architects and their design choices, will be revealed and explained.

When people think of 42nd Street, they usually do not think of architecture -- they think of Times Square. However, along 42nd Street, this city offers some of the best work by some of this country's greatest designers. Along this one avenue, there is the Art Deco icon, the most perfect railroad station ever built, the second largest library in the United States and the block with the highest concentration of theaters ever built. In between all of that, there is some of the most beautiful and under appreciated buildings ever designed and constructed.

This is a tour not just for architecture students, but a great introduction into the 'how's' and 'whys' New York City became the city we all know and love today.
