Emery Roth, born in 1871, was an architect and Hungarian-Jewish immigrant to New York. Roth designed many of the definitive New York City hotels and apartment buildings of the 1920s and 1930s, including the UWS’s Beresford and San Remo, incorporating Beaux-Arts and Art Deco details to create the decorative streetscapes we know and love.
Historic preservation expert Andrew Dolkart and archivist Shelley Hayreh are joined by Richard Roth, Jr. and Emery Roth II for a history-filled discussion about Roth’s architecture, work, life, archive and legacy.
