Caroline Zaleski on Long Island Modern

November 1, 2012

If you missed Caroline Zaleski at our September Modern Conversations event, you have another chance to hear all about Long Island Modernism. The AIA NY Historic Buildings and the Planning and Urban Design committees will host a discussion with Zaleski about her new book Long Island Modernism 1930–1980. Based on a survey conducted for the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities, Zaleski’s book is the first illustrated history of Long Island’s Modern architecture. Part architectural history, part social history, Zaleski explains why Modernism was embraced by Long Island’s civic, cultural and business leaders as well as those escaping the city for the weekend.

Thursday November 1, 6:00pm
AIA Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place
