"Streetscapes" Columns by Christopher Gray, 1987-1991

[1992-97] [1998- ]
This list covers the appearance of the "Streetscapes" column by Christopher Gray in The New York Times, from March 15, 1987 up to the present day. The subject of the column is the history and architecture of New York City, principally Manhattan, with a secondary emphasis on modern preservation practices and policies. The column was conceived by the late Michael Sterne and has been continued by his successor Michael Leahy. Also included are occasional feature stories by Christopher Gray and elsewhere in the same newspaper.

Note, 21 July 03: Bryn Mawr College students Amanda Chudnow and Caroline Drucker have devised a general map interface that links to geographical subsets.

Although the text of the column is not posted here, it has always appeared in the Sunday Real Estate Section of The New York Times, usually on page six or seven, and is recoverable through normal library techniques. In 1990 Dover Publications published most of the 1987-1989 columns in book form as Changing New York. The Times now offers old columns on the web in two forms. Those less than 365 days old are available free or for a small fee at:

http://archives.nytimes.com/archives/

Older articles are available for a daily search fee of $24 (for unlimited use of the Times archives back to 1980) at:

Thanks to Jeffrey A. Cohen of Bryn Mawr College for preparing this list for posting on the web site of the Society of Architectural Historians. This has offered the author the welcome opportunity to publicly correct published errors; he earnestly solicits correspondence from those who find others, no matter how small.
