Mod Around Pond


Albany, NY
Image details

Join Historic Albany and local historian Lorraine Weiss for a walking tour of Albany’s Mid-Century Modern neighborhood around Buckingham Pond. This eclectic neighborhood sprouted roughly between 1941 and 1960 as the upper middle class desired a more suburban and contemporary lifestyle. Albany architects Henry Blatner and Leon Einhorn filled in the gaps between the brick and clapboard clad Colonial Revivals with strikingly modern Prairie and Ranch style houses. The neighborhood is the most modern in style of all of Albany’s diverse neighborhoods.
