New York Brownstones: Icons of a Great City

Charles Lockwood, author of the indispensable Bricks and Brownstone was described by The New Yorker as the “consummate authority” on this iconic building type. His recent research has uncovered many surprising facts and long-forgotten historical photographs.

Mr. Lockwood discusses the evolution of the New York row house from the 1820s onward, describes the daily lives of houses’ occupants, and illustrates how brownstones were designed, built, and sold 100 to 150 years ago.

This event was held at the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York.
