November 10, 2016: Only in NY: Hearst Tower

Encore: November 10, 2016

The Hearst Tower stands as an impressive, geometric contribution to the iconic New York City skyline. The 46-story-tall steel and glass skyscraper sits atop an art deco base that was originally built in 1928 and gives a stunning picture of New York City’s past and present. The building, its construction, and its history is explored in Treasures of New York, Hearst Tower. We have a preview of this documentary with Lord Norman Foster, Pritzker Prize-winning architect, as well as the architect behind the design of the Hearst Tower, who will take us for a unique tour of the building. Also, don’t miss the full episode, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. on WLIW and Sunday, November 13th at 7 p.m. on Thirteen.
