Now online, our most recent print Newsletter

February 23, 2013

In January we published the 2012 no. 2 issue of the DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State Newsletter. This issue heads north with articles on Modern architecture at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, and a trio of towers in downtown Rochester. Back to Manhattan, read about Chatham Green at its 50 year mark; a relatively unknown, yet instructive, late 60s complex at Tenth Avenue and 40th Street; and the ever glamorous Park Avenue—in the movies no less. For an international bent, learn the history behind Mies’ Villa Tugendhat in Brno, Czech Republic, a site now open for public tours. The newsletter also includes advocacy updates on Midtown Manhattan East and two at-risk Manhattan interiors, plus notes on four fine new books.
