If you did not catch the public television special Treasures of New York: Stanford White last Thursday night, tune in to WNET Channel 13 TONIGHT at 10:00 PM to watch Professor Mosette Broderick, Director of NYU’s undergraduate Urban Design and Architecture Studies Program, M.A. in Historical and Sustainable Architecture, and Urban Design in London Summer Program, and Samuel G. White, a Principal in the New York architectural firm of Platt Byard Dovell White and Adjunct Faculty in the Urban Design and Architecture Studies Program, both of whom appear in the program.
Treasures of New York: Stanford White examines the life and career of renowned Gilded Age architect Stanford White, a founding partner of the influential America architectural firm McKim, Mead & White, and the designer of the original Madison Square Garden, NYU’s former University Heights campus (now Bronx Community College), including the magnificent Gould Memorial Library, The Century Association, The Metropolitan Club, the Pulitzer Mansion (73rdStreet), and the Washington Square Arch, among other iconic New York buildings and landmarks. The program features interviews with both Professor Broderick, author of the acclaimed Triumvirate: McKim, Mead & White: Art, Architecture, Scandal and Class in America’s Gilded Age (Alfred A. Knopf, 2010) and Professor White, a great-grandson of Stanford White, among other experts.
And if you can’t watch the program tonight, that’s OK: it’s available for streaming as well.
