Discover the stunning and often hidden architecture of one of New York City’s most under appreciated engineers in our virtual talk: Guastavino’s New York. The Guastavino father and son team incorporated their tile arch system into dozens of buildings across the five boroughs including New York City’s most iconic landmarks like Grand Central Terminal, City Hall Station, and the Queensboro Bridge.
