Feeling the end-of-summer/back-to-school blues? Get back in the academic spirit this evening with our free lecture- C. B. J. Snyder’s School Design in the Village.
Urban public schools are some of the most architecturally intriguing buildings in the dense city landscape. In New York City, Charles B. J. Snyder almost singlehandedly made school design what it is today. During his tenure as the Superintendent of School Buildings for the NYC Board of Education from 1891 to 1923, Snyder transformed school building construction and design, creating over 350 new schools. Join historian Jean Arrington as she takes you through her own discovery of the architect’s work and delves into the specific design attributes of Snyder’s schools in the Village.
The event is being held at the Hudson Park Branch Library, 66 Leroy Street (off 7th Avenue South) from 6:30-8pm. We do ask that you RSVP either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 212-475-9585 x35. Hope to see you there!
