We will explore the rich historic architecture of one of the first residential developments in NYC. Many of the homes still exist and have been renovated. New homes, office buildings and apartment buildings have taken over the street corridors of Queens Blvd and Union Tpk. The street escapes provides a grid layout with some breath-taking views of Forest Park. As architects, engineers and lovers of history, we can learn so much from the styles, materials and methods of construction of 100 years ago. We can also learn how urban planners were able to preserve nature and allow residents to take shelter among lush lawns, beautiful trees, and healthy air.

This walking tour will take about 3 hours and provide 3 LU HSW.

$20 for AIA Members $30 for Non-Members if register early
