This Spring, Untapped New York collaborated with Columbia GSAPP to create a mini-series of podcast episodes designed to welcome incoming students to the GSAPP family. In case you missed this episode as part of GSAPP’s 2020 Open House, we wanted to re-share it with you here!
Throughout the series, we explore architecturally interesting and historic New York City neighborhoods that house Columbia University’s campus and surrounding communities. This is our first of three conversations specifically produced for the School.
In this episode, Michelle Young and Justin Rivers of Untapped New York discuss the neighborhood of Morningside Heights, which is home to Columbia University’s Morningside Campus and to GSAPP. Michelle Young is GSAPP faculty, alum (‘12 MSUP), and founder of Untapped New York. Justin Rivers, Chief Experience Officer at Untapped New York, will share five hidden spots including Alma Mater, the Guastavino Dome at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Riverside Church’s Labyrinth, Ulysses S. Grant’s Tomb, and the meeting of 125th and 129th Streets.
This podcast was produced and edited in collaboration with Untapped New York.
