FROM SKID ROW TO PRITZKER ROW


An A’18 tour led by Stephen Zacks reveals New York’s new Bowery and the Lower East Side in our newly gilded age. Architect, Mar. 2018.



"When CBGB became a John Varvatos shop, New Yorkers mourned the end of the Bowery. Notorious as the city’s skid row in the 19th century and countercultural zone through the 20th, the Bowery’s rapid gentrification has left a strange mix of old and new. Among the new constructions, the Bowery boasts buildings by well-known architecture firms and up-and-comers. The effect is a series of connected neighborhoods that might be pricier than ever, but remain as varied as before. Interested? Sign up for this tour at conferenceonarchitecture.com."
