After twenty-one years at 850 Seventh Avenue, and six months of headaches, The New Criterion is moving. Here is what Roger Kimball has to say about it:
Although I have always admired the Duke of Cambridge’s assertion that he was "against all change at any time for any reason," the end of our lease and the prospect of a sharp rise in rent at our current location were the sorts of change we decided to resist by making a change of our own. On or about September 10th, then, we will be pitching our tent at 900 Broadway (at 20th Street).Located along the old Ladies Mile, The Goelet building--our new home--was designed in the Romanesque style by Stanford White in 1885. Here and here are two links on the building. Also, not enough can be said about the architect Tobias Arianna, who has donated his services to design a handsome and fitting interior for the new offices in a challenging space of weird angles and free-standing columns.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few individuals who donated their time and expertise to help us: the architect Tobias Arianna of Landy Verderame Arianna, New York, made our new offices beautiful, and our legal counsel--including Bernard Michael and Ann Shipley--made the lease possible. I also extend my thanks to you--the many New Criterion readers and supporters who have contributed to our moving-fund appeal.
As of September 13, 2003, the new address for The New Criterion will be:
The New Criterion
New York, NY 10003
