Mid Century Modern in New York City

It is no surprise that the Mid-Century Modern style can be found in New York City. The city itself is a melting pot of many fashions where new ideas are constantly born. While wandering through the neighborhoods of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, it will be easy to spot these relics of Mid-Century design. Boasting elegant lines, geometric shapes, and beautiful colors, this style added a chic but purposeful flare to the city.

A great example of Mid-Century Modern design is the New York State Pavilion, a former site of the World Fair. Located in Queens, Philip Johnson constructed this modernistic structure that would resemble a floating ring. Standing close by, the Unisphere reminds onlookers that the world is hugged by technology.  The giant, metal globe is wrapped with larger metal rings which represent international satellite paths.

Harlem - Mid Century Modern Highlights

The trendy neighborhood of Harlem is abundant with Mid-Century Modern design. Revamped in 1966 by Costas Machlouzarides, the Greater Refuge Temple matches its purpose. A colorful façade houses a choir of joyful worshippers. While the outside is vibrant, the inside is white in color with beautiful, curved ceilings. Once a movie house but converted into a church, the Greater Refuge Temple exhibits a bold exterior including large golden cross and geometric shapes filled with color

Eero Saarinen in New York City

One of the most prominent Mid-Century Modern designers was Eero Saarinen. Saarinen was responsible for designing and constructing the beautiful John F. Kennedy Airport- also known as the Trans World Flight Center.  Located in Queens, its notable features include a bird shaped roof supported by large Y shaped columns. Like other designs of the time, a large amount of glass was utilized to create giant walls of windows. Although it is not used as an airport today, it is considered a historical landmark.

There are countless examples of Mid-Century Modern Art in New York City. The George Washington Bus Station, the New York Hall of Science, and Marcel Breuer’s Bronx Community College are just a few more. In a city that is constantly moving and changing, these designs still inspire people with their timeless, futuristic qualities.
