Course Schedule – Fall 2023 / History and Philosophy / NYC AND ITS ENVIRONS

Coordinators: Paul Golomb, Bob Reiss

New York City is a tapestry. It is a 400-year development entailing subsequent waves of immigration and architectural styles.

We will focus in each session on a definitive neighborhood, describing its history, architectural and topographic features, significant landmarks, course of development, and its contribution to the City as a whole.
