      Description:
      Flashback one hundred years ago: while New York City was just about to enter a period of limitless social and economic prosperity now known as the "Roaring Twenties," the skyline was about to roar as well. This is the story of how oversized egos, overheated real estate rivalries, and relentless competition fueled NYC's skyscraper boom and relentless rise into the sky.

      Join our special guest hosts as we embark on a virtual exploration of the magnificent Art Deco skyscrapers built between the 1920s and '30s that propelled our metropolis into the sky.

      Led by NYC Tour Guide Deborah Zelcer, our unique digital walkthrough around Midtown Manhattan will include:

      > An overview of 1920s New York, and why it went from a city of six-story walkups to a towering metropolis
      > A look at NYC's evolution of art and architecture in the early 20th century, which morphed from emulating European historical revival styles to the adaptation of Modernism
      > The incredible story behind the race to build the tallest building in the world, and the colorful characters who clashed along the way
      > A virtual 3D walkthrough of some of NYC's most notable lobbies, including 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the Fred. F. French Building, Chrysler > Building, and the Empire State Building

      Afterward, we'll have a Q&A with Deborah — any and all questions about New York's art deco buildings are welcomed and encouraged!
