Join architectural historian John Tauranac* as he leads us on an exploration of Upper West Side buildings with evocative names. From the Dakota Apartments on Central Park West at 72nd Street to the Montana Apartments on Broadway at 87th Street, the tour will encompass a nearly 100-year span of neighborhood history and architectural styles –from the German Renaissance of the 1880s, to the majestic Art Deco of the 1920s, and finally to the post-Modern of the 1980s.
