Art Deco in the Financial District

The tour provides not only narrative on individual buildings and their architects, but also offers context and background on the design elements and influences of American Art Deco.

Art Deco is said to be one of the few architectural styles that most Americans can recognize and name, and its enduring popularity bears this out. Though Boston is less well-known for its Art Deco architecture than New York and Miami, it can claim examples of Art Deco design that would rival New York's finest.

Boston's greatest concentration of Art Deco is in the City's Financial District, an area substantially leveled by fire in 1872 and ripe for a second cycle of redevelopment 50 years later. Discover the downtown you often see, but rarely notice.
