More about this on-demand virtual talk and tour includes a pdf of the photo stops for you to visit on your own:

From the time Henry Hudson sailed into New York’s Harbor, the City has been a hub of trade and commerce. See how New York’s architectural styles changed over 400 years from the Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival, Romanesque Revival, Italianate, Renaissance Revival, Gothic Revival, “Queen Anne”, Neo-Classic to the modern period we see today. You’ll love taking a virtual look through the neighborhoods and knowing when these buildings were created and imagining who lived and worked in them. Hear the stories about what was happening in New York during this time, how some private home became boarding houses, and then back to private houses. See the buildings that have created the iconic wonderland of art and design and the incredible architects who designed them. We’ll look at the future of New York City through zoning and the needs of the people who work and live side by side in towering skyscrapers and landmarked neighborhoods. Hear how developers are creating safe environments for their workers to return to office buildings from street to seat after the Covid virus has changed the lifestyle of families, who live and work in confined spaces. See how the waterfront has been transforming from industrial to recreational neighborhood by neighborhood and how public and private partnerships are creating new destinations.
