  • Palaces for the People: Guastavino and America's Great Public Spaces
    March 26–September 14
    What do the arched approaches to the 59th Street Bridge and the Oyster Bar at Grand Central Terminal have in common? To find out, just look up. Their tiled vaults are a small portion of Rafael Guastavino's local legacy. Guastavino, a Spanish immigrant, and his son, Rafael Jr., developed these ingenious spans more than a century ago—they’re lightweight, fireproof and structurally sound. Their work can also be found at Carnegie Hall, the Bronx Zoo's Elephant House and 200 other sites around the City, and now they (both the Guastavinos and the spaces they made possible) are getting their due with a major exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York.
