Architecture and Design Month in New York City

Archtober is the sixth annual month-long festival of architecture, activities, programs and exhibitions in New York City. The Center for Architecture, the New York City chapter of the American Institute of Architecture, organizes the events. Again this year, Esto images are instrumental in picturing the city. Over the course of the month we’ll be featuring NYC buildings captured by Esto’s team.

Building of the Day: Ezra Stoller’s vintage images of the New York State Pavilion at the 1964 World’s Fair show the building at its best, as it was meant to be. Now, the place is just a shell and a beacon for preservation.
