The classic book Bricks & Brownstone, originally written by Charles Lockwood and published in 1972, is the first and still the only volume to examine in depth the changing form and varied architectural styles of the much-loved New York City row house, or brownstone. That edition helped pave the way for a brownstone revival that has transformed New York’s historic neighborhoods over the past half-century. This revised and expanded edition, published by Rizzoli and written by Patrick W. Ciccone, revisits the classic comprehensively, with updated text and additional chapters, and an abundance of specially commissioned color photography.
Join author Patrick W. Ciccone for a lecture and celebration of the revised edition of this classic work featuring Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, and Second Empire architectural styles and so much more.
Patrick W. Ciccone is a New York City-based preservationist who has led major historic rehabilitation projects in Manhattan, Brooklyn, upstate New York, and Pennsylvania.

This event is not fully accessible, there are ten steps up to the front door.
