Next Bowery Boys live appearance: the Skyscraper Museum!

This Tuesday, August 16,  join us at the Skyscraper Museum in Battery Park City. We’ll be doing a reading and book signing on promotion of our book Adventures In Old New York, in particular chatting out some of the more unusual skyscraper architecture of downtown New York.

Here are more details about that event. It’s a free show but you have to RSVP and it’ll fill up fast!  Email your RSVP (with number of guests) to programs@skyscraper.org. 

All book talks are free and open to the public. The gallery opens at 6:00pm.

Some of you may be wondering — what is the Skyscraper Museum? It’s a great institution that sometimes gets lost in the shuffle.  Their first exhibition opened in 1997 at a location on Wall Street. Another location of theirs at 110 Maiden Lane closed after September 11, 2001, to become an emergency information center to assist downtown businesses.

Their mission is to celebrate the history of skyscrapers and to speculate on their future.Their latest exhibit space, at 39 Battery Place, features the show GARDEN CITY MEGA CITY about the Singapore-based WOHA, an architecture firm that specializes in designing for the world’s tropical urban areas. .  Since our reading will be in the gallery, you’ll get the check out this show as well!
