we’re planning to pack a lunch one day this week and pop over to this cool retrospective on architect ralph walker, whose magnificent art deco masterpieces are all over new york city. you may not know his name, but you’ll definitely recognize his iconic buildings in nyc’s skyline (think the barclay vesey telephone building and the irving trust building at one wall street).
check it out at 212 west 18th Street. admission is free and by appointment only, so call first: 212 335 1800.
