Exploring Deco in . . .
Exploring Deco In . . . is a column featured in each issue of the Art Deco New York journal. The column focuses on highlighting Art Deco architecture and design in various neighborhoods and cultural centers throughout the five boroughs of New York City. In each column, architectural and design historians give a brief history of a specific area; explain why the Deco movement spread throughout that region during the interwar period; and explore the unique social climate or cultural context that fostered the Art Deco style in that neighborhood of interest.
To help readers delve into the special architecture and design highlighted in each column, historians also include a map and short overview of regional treasures that create the perfect resource for self-guided walking tours.
