In celebration of two exhibitions on Modernist architects, MoMA has a ‘scavenger hunt’ of sorts on to get a discounted ticket. Your SVA ID already entitles you to free entry (!!!), so that’s not much appeal, but they have put together a cool list of NYC landmark that are worth checking out, whatever the reason. One of their hot spots is Stuyesant Town, just a block over from the SVA Library.
Here are titles in the stacks on Modernism and NYC:
