New York’s innovative concrete buildings mapped

October 22, 2017

New York is the latest city to get the “concrete map” treatment by Blue Crow Media, an independent publisher that creates “thoughtfully designed and carefully curated city maps.” While not exclusively Modernist, Concrete New York features quite a few Modern sites, both Brutalist and otherwise, such as Marcel Breuer’s Begrisch Hall at Bronx Community College, John Carl Warnecke’s Long Lines Building in lower Manhattan, Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal, Albert Ledner’s Curran/O’Toole Building, and I.M. Pei’s Silver Towers in Greenwich Village.
