Wednesday, July 27th | 6:15pm-8:15pm | Architecture in the Wild: Exploring NOTA and East Avenue's Architectural History

Love old buildings but don’t know a Queen Anne from a Dutch Colonial? The Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs for short) are taking students out onto the streets to explore Rochester’s architectural history in its natural setting. In this 2-hour outdoor class, students will walk the Neighborhood of the Arts and the East Avenue neighborhoods and learn the names of important architectural styles; some basic architectural terminology; and how to approximately date the buildings you see every day.

Please note: This class is an active walking tour (approximately two miles on sidewalks and paved paths). Please wear appropriate clothes for the weather and walking shoes.

This class is appropriate for ages 14+. Anyone under the age of 18 must attend with a parent or guardian. Please purchase one ticket per person attending.

This class is a walking tour that starts at Rochester Brainery, 176 Anderson Ave. F109, Rochester, NY 14607.

If you would like to request a sign language interpreter or will be attending class with an aide, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
