Brooklyn G Train Tour
Hop on and off the G train from Carroll Gardens to Clinton Hill and Williamsburg, taking in townhouses, campus facilities and other buildings along the way.

Saturday, May 16, 11am - 1:30pm
Columbia University
Look at recent additions to the campuses of Columbia University and Barnard College in Morningside Heights, take a sneak peek at Columbia’s expansion into Manhattanville and head up to Inwood to see Columbia’s new athletics complex. (And maybe see DS+R's Columbia University Medical Center building under construction, the photo below.)

Saturday, May 30, 11am - 1:30pm
The High Line and Its Environs
Trek the High Line taking in the park and the surrounding buildings and step off to get a closer look at select buildings. (It goes the opposite direction of my time-lapse walk below.)
