SOLD OUT - DOCOMOMO: MOD AROUND THE POND

9:30 - 11:30 a.m. | Meeting Place Provided Upon Reservation

$5 HAF Members | $10 General Public

Join Historic Albany and preservation planner Lorraine Weiss for a walking tour of Albany’s Mid-Century Modern neighborhood around Buckingham Pond. This eclectic neighborhood sprouted roughly between 1941 and 1960 as the upper middle class desired a more suburban and contemporary lifestyle. Albany architects Henry Blatner and Leon Einhorn filled in the gaps between the brick and clapboard clad Colonial Revivals with strikingly modern Prairie and Ranch style houses.  The neighborhood is the most modern in style of all of Albany’s diverse neighborhoods. Space is limited and reservations are required. Contact Lisa at info@historic-albany.org or 518.465.0876, ext. 14.
