On Wednesday, June 12 at 6:30pm, I’ll be giving a book talk on NYC Walks: Guide to New Architecture at the Mid-Manhattan Library. As you might know, the actual Mid-Manhattan Library is being renovated by Mecanoo and will open next year, so my talk will be taking place at the library’s temporary location inside the Stephen A. Schwarzman Library at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue. The event is free, but be sure to register via this link.
Details on the June 12 event from NYPL’s website:
Take a 21st century walking tour of the newest buildings in New York City.
NYC Walks is a portable, easy-to-use architectural guide that showcases the most exciting new buildings in New York. Choose between ten 1- to 3-mile walks that extend from Columbia University through lower Manhattan and across to Brooklyn and Queens. John Hill highlights over 150 buildings as well as popular attractions like the High Line and Lincoln Center, and vibrant neighborhoods including Williamsburg and the Bowery. Maps and photographs make this a compelling and useful guide for visitors, architecture buffs, and New Yorkers alike.
FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED
Registration does not guarantee admission. For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission. All registered seats are released shortly before start time, and seats may become available at that time. A stand by line will form 30 minutes before the program.
The Program Room opens at 6 PM.
