Arguments about density have shaped and reshaped New York. With the guidance of gallery manager Josh Vogel, Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to explore this topic at the Skyscraper Museum’s newest exhibition, Housing Density: From Tenements to Towers. Density today remains a hyper-charged concept – a negative to many who equate it with crowding – or a positive for those who claim it creates more vibrant and affordable urban life. Whatever one believes about its relative merits, a better understanding of density is a first step to meaningful dialogue about the future of the city. To help give you that understanding, the new exhibition is packed with three-dimensional diagrams, graphs, building plans, photographs and other documents, which provide a comprehensive view of the issues surrounding density from many perspectives.

DATE: Monday, July 29th, 2019 at 5:00PM-6:00PM *Please note that the museum closes at 6:00PM so if you would like additional time to explore the gallery on your own, please arrive prior to the tour.

PRICE: FREE for Untapped Cities Insiders!

CAPACITY: 30 guests. Spots allocated on a first come, first served basis.

REGISTRATION: Opens Monday, July 15th, 2019 at 12PM EST
