Landmark West! is inviting you to this one-evening-only virtual architectural journey exploring one of the most significant concentrations of artists’ studio apartment buildings in Manhattan – the magnificent grouping of eight buildings on West 67th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Landmark West! is honored to have Prof. Andrew Dolkart - the preservation historian who wrote the national designation report on all of these buildings - lead the journey along the West 67th Street Artists' Colony Historic District in this exclusive online program bursting with rare historic photos and fascinating details. From the painted murals of Poetica, Pictura and Musica in the lobby of Central Park Studios to the Tiffany lamp illuminating the entry to Sixty-Seventh Street Studios to the 30-inch thick soundproof walls of the Musician’s building and the neo-Gothic façade of the Hotel des Artistes, this is an undeniably spectacular collection of buildings.

The event is on Wednesday, January 20 from 6:30pm – 7:45pm via Zoom. Tickets are $25 for the general public and $15 for LW! Members. Click here to purchase.

And, if you want to take your own, socially-distant tour of the Historic District, make sure to stop at the Hotel des Artistes at One West 67th Street to dine at The Leopard at des Artistes’ beautiful, heated outdoor patio!
