goARCHkids

Hi! This week I'm bringing on a new contributor. Rudie E. Hurwitz will write about architecture appreciation in the city. The segments will be aptly named: goARCHkids, so look for the postings. And now, an introductory message from our new contributor:

I'm Rudie Hurwitz, a former art historian. I worked for years at the Frick before focusing on architectural history. With the arrival of my fourth child I decided to take a break from the office. Few places are as rich in architectural information as New York City and I find myself constantly stopping in the middle of the sidewalk with the kids to point this out. It's a privilege to be surrounded by this wealth of architecture and I spend a lot of time thinking about how to enrich the lives of kids by making accessible the beauty and information around them.

With this blog, I'm hoping to supply you and your family with information and photographs that will inspire you to go find these sites in your neighborhoods. I'm going to show you what the kids and I saw today. So, look up, look around, and enjoy!
