Chronicle Books has just published Core-fave Alissa Walker's City Walks: Architecture: New York, with maps by John Spelman. To celebrate, Alissa is hosting a week of walks from October 18-24, highlighting some of her selections for the book.
Core77 is proud to be sponsoring the first in this series, entitled "A World of Tomorrow in Queens: Space-Age Adventures for Pint-Size Walkers/Pre-Walkers."
Bring the kids (and strollers) for this walk that starts at the new Shea Stadium and wanders through the fantastic structures left behind by the 1964 World's Fair, ending at the New York Hall of Science for a round of Rocket Park Mini Golf and astronaut ice cream.
To participate, meet at 1pm on Sunday, October 18th at Willets Point Blvd at the Shea Stadium Station on the 7 in Queens.
The rest of the walks, sponsored by the likes of Worldstudio, the School of Visual Arts, ForYourArt , Chronicle Books, the Architect's Newspaper and GOOD magazine, include tours of the High Line, a survey of Broadway skyscrapers, a dawn walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and more. Find out all details here.
Not to be missed!
