Top 10 Architectural Moments of 2009 - NYC has #2,5,6

In the LA Times, Christopher Hawthorne offers his "Top 10" list of architectural moments of 2009. In the #2 spot is the new Alice Tully. The pedestrian mall on Broadway is #5 and the High Line is #6. These are great choices, and I am reminded of how many photos I have of these places. Thank God for digital or our home would be filled to the ceiling with boxes of photos and reels of what used to be called "home movies".

I made this video on Memorial Day, May 25, 2009, recording the celebration of the opening of the Broadway pedestrian mall.

  1. You forgot #9: Two books from two of NYC's most important architectural critics, Paul Goldberger and Herbert Muschamp. REQUIRED READING for anyone who appreciates the space where architecture, queer and New York intersect is Muschamp's amazing article, published on Edward Durell Stone's 2 Columbus Circle (the lollypop building). Yes, it's long, but read the whole thing. There will be a test.
