“The Upper West Side from the Air” with John Tauranac Presented by Landmark West!

Join urban historian John Tauranac as he takes us airborne (virtually) to enjoy a truly spectacular Upper West Side photo tour from above, compliments of his partnership with world-renowned aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand on the gorgeous book New York From the Air: A Story of Architecture. Come delight in the power and beauty of Manhattan’s amazing skyscrapers, the bucolic joys of Central Park, and the majesty of the Upper West Side’s castle-like apartment buildings. The incredible UWS photographs — most taken in early morning or evening to capture the golden “magic light” — will be shared in all their large-screen glory. Mr. Tauranac will additionally zero-in on some of the more special buildings to showcase details of facades, lobbies, entrances, etc. This event is hosted by Landmark West!, an award-winning non-profit that works to achieve landmark status for individual buildings and historic districts on the Upper West Side and to protect them from insensitive change and demolition.
