WEISS/MANFREDI's Virtual Commute with Michael Kimmelman
MAY 6, 2020- In today's New York Times, Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi take architecture critic Michael Kimmelman on a virtual walking tour of their daily commute from their home in Brooklyn Heights, across the Brooklyn Bridge, and to the WEISS/MANFREDI studio in Lower Manhattan. They speak about the various important architectural works on both sides of the bridge, and their relationship to them.
"During the late '60s, when I was a child, I visited New York for the first time with my family...I saw the Brooklyn Bridge, with its wonderful arc, and the skyscrapers, which looked to me like they were floating. I thought New York was Oz," said Manfredi. Weiss adds, "We can still get chills walking over the bridge into Lower Manhattan — in the morning light the Woolworth Building, the Gehry building, the Municipal Building all dematerialize."
