Courses / History / WHY DOES NEW YORK LOOK THE WAY IT DOES?

Coordinators: Ethel Sheffer, Michael Wellner

New York City is home to most of us; we walk by famous old and new buildings often without giving it much thought. But why does the city look the way it does? Skyscrapers on one block, three or four story buildings on another, parks here, but not there…How did this happen? (hint: not all of it is by accident—although some of it is). Join us as we look at the amazing history and current development of NYC buildings.
