This issue introduces a new column, Preview: AIA Guide to NYC. Penned by Fran Leadon, AIA, co-author with Norval White, FAIA, of the fifth edition of the AIA Guide to NYC, each monthly installment will provide a sneak peek into the book leading up to its 2010 publication. Also, be sure to read the editorial by AIANY Executive Director Rick Bell, FAIA, on current events, Bloomberg & Obama in Concert. And if you are LEED accredited, or considering becoming accredited, read my Editor’s Soapbox about LEED 2009, More Red Tape to Complicate Going Green.
