Stanford White was the most fashionable New York architect of the “American Renaissance,” designing a variety of NYC buildings, including Judson Memorial Church, Bronx Community College, the Washington Arch and the sadly demolished old Madison Square Garden and magnificent Herald Building. On our virtual tour, we will visit his most significant designs and consider their place in the history of New York: how they celebrated architectural styles of the past while creating spaces for a new twentieth century American lifestyle.
