Unsung Urbanist: Robert C. Weinberg

Unsung Urbanist: Robert C. Weinberg

Article from the Spring 2007 Newsletter

Robert C. Weinberg was one of those ubiquitous civic figures that addressed planning and architecture in New York City during the mid 20th century. Though largely forgotten, Weinberg was a prolific commentator on the state of development and preservation projects. In an ongoing exploration of Weinberg’s ideas on urban and civic issues, NYPAP received a publication grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. NYPAP has enlisted Christopher Neville to complete the publication that will focus on several sites in New York City that Robert C. Weinberg addressed which remain hot topics today. Mr. Neville’s publication will appear on the NYPAP website in March.
