C. B. J. Snyder’s School Design in the Village
A special encore presentation
Urban public schools are some of the most architecturally intriguing buildings one can find in the dense city landscape. In New York City one man, Charles B. J. Snyder, made that notion what it is today. During his tenure as Superintendent of School Buildings for the NYC Board of Education from 1891-1923, Snyder transformed school building construction and design, creating over 100 schools. Join historian Jean Arrington as she takes you through her own discovery of the architect’s work and delves into the specific design attributes of Snyder’s schools in the Village.
