Landmarks@45: The Video
Last Monday, in honor of the 45th Anniversary of the New York Landmarks Law, there was a small lunchtime celebration at the Four Seasons Restaurant (a Modern interior landmark). Speakers at the occasion were Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel (who organized the event), Paul Goldberger, Anthony C. Wood and Steven Berlin Johnson. Some of their remarks were reported last week by James Barron in The New York Times but through the magic of the internet and the generosity of the Municipal Art Society and Duke University, you can experience their remarks on video. For viewing ease, Barbarlee Diamonstein-Spielvogel greets the guests at 7:46, Paul Goldberger speaks at 19:13, Anthony C. Wood speaks at 35:45 and Steven Berlin Johnson speaks at 47:14.
