Touring Architecturally-Smug New York City


When the AIA picked the 150 best-loved buildings in the U.S. earlier this year, it was no surprise that New York racked up the most mentions, including not just one but two Manhattan Apple stores. The NY Times’ Seth Kugel curates a walking architecture tour of NY that hits 25 of the 33 on the list in a meandering, Starbucks-dotted nine-mile urban hike.
