New York in Fifty Design Icons Summary

New York in Fifty Design Icons: Design Museum Fifty by Design Museum Enterprise Limited

In this new series, the Design Museum looks at the fifty design icons of major cities around the world - icons that, when viewed together, inherently sum up the spirit of their city. Covering anything from buildings and monuments to a graffiti mural or an item of clothing, we are able to build up an intricate portrait of a city, layer by layer.

From the infamous Chysler Building and the Brooklyn Bridge to the New York Yankees logo or CBGB's, the beating heart of the 1970s punk movement, New York is a tapestry of design masterpieces. Join Julie Iovine, architectural writer at the Wall Street Journal and formerly of the New York Times, as she unravels the visual history of one of our most famous and fascinating cities.

Contents include:
Empire State Building
Flat Iron Building
Tiffany & Co. powder blue
CBGBs
Radio City Music Hall
Stonewall, Christopher Street
Stock Exchange bell
Millionaire's Row, Fifth Avenue
Guggenheim Museum
New York Yankees logo
...and many more.
