Go back in time with these NYC architectural treasures

By Jaz Joyner

New York City is over 250 years old, which makes this a great place to find beautiful architecture. That would explain why nearly a thousand architectural artifacts from Tribeca company Urban Archaeology, an organization known for saving historic elements from decay, will be presented at NYC-based auction house Guernsey’s in just a couple weeks. You don't have to actually buy anything at this auction, but this is your chance to get up close and personal with some of New York's most well-preserved history, including pieces from the St. Regis Hotels, Yale University Library and even the famously gorgeous St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Just head to UA March 24–26 from 10am–7pm for a look at items like an ornate staircase designed by blacksmith Samuel Yellin and golden fortress doors from 1910. Here, just see some of these historic treasures for yourself:

Grand Staircase, Samuel Yellin

Winged Griffin Clutching a Lantern, ca 1910

Fortress Doors, United States Assay Office ca 1910
