View Full Version : classic new york

It would be good to have a sub-forum in the architecture forum devoted to buildings in New York older than 30 years. I think there is a large minority that is more interested in historical New York than (most) contemporary architecture.
Just a thought.

I'm one of that large minority. Good suggestion, Tom. The New York Skyscrapers and Architecture forum seems to be dominated by new developments. Since "skyscrapers and architecture" is a broad area, perhaps several sub-forums would help to separate specific interests; just some thoughts:

New York Skyscrapers and Architecture (general architecture/urban environment discussions, e.g. structural engineering issues, preservation, housing projects, residential/retail/civic architecture, etc., etc.)
-- New/Recent Developments
-- Classic/Vintage New York Buildings
-- Skyscrapers (for those who like tall, young and old)

Ehhh...That last sub-forum could be knocked off.

While I think that there is sufficient interest in historical New York architecture to warrant a separate forum or sub-forum, having too many forums tends to fragment and duplicate topics. I have found this to be the case at places such as SSP.

Or maybe I'm trying to avoid extra work for moderators.
