About this Event

While the blocks from 35th and 41st Streets between Broadway and 9th Avenue in New York are best known for their role in fashion and labor history, the area known as the Garment District also plays an important role in architectural history. But how did this tiny neighborhood influence not just fashion, but the future of architecture throughout the rest of the city and country? It's time to explore "Fashion Avenue" and its role in setting the architectural style of the nation.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the architecture history of the Garment District and how a rapid development of art deco skyscrapers after World War I helped create a city within a city, which became a model for urban centers throughout the nation.

Led by writer, historian, and New York City tour guide Lucie Levine, our virtual experience surrounding the Garment District's architecture will include:


  • The origins of the Garment District, from why a designated area for New York's garment industry was needed to the millionaire merchants who led a campaign to “Save New York” from garment lofts
  • A discussion of how architects in the Garment District tried to create a “New York Style” of architecture, and the "father of the New York Skyline" who designed 14 buildings in the neighborhood
  • How once-humble garment workers became real estate tycoons who built “Garment Cities” named after themselves (and where you can still find their names carved in stone!)
  • The close-knit ties between the area’s architectural history and Jewish immigrant experience in New York in the years following WWI
  • A look at some of the district's most iconic art deco towers and interiors, from those still-standing to demolished long ago

Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Lucie — any and all questions about the architecture of the Garment District are welcomed and encouraged!
