Columbia University in the City of New York Window Survey Report Volume I

Columbia University's core historic campus, located in the Morningside Heights area of Manhattan, is an ensemble of classically designed Beaux Arts buildings that date to the turn of the twentieth century. Many of them were designed by the prominent architectural firm of McKim, Mead, and White. The windows of these buildings, which are the originals and range in date from 1903 to 1928, are an integral part of the character of the campus. Planning funds will support the creation of a detailed report on the specifications of existing windows, which are in various states of disrepair, in order to proceed with a repair and replacement program.

Columbia University received a Getty grant in 2002 for $200,000 to support campus heritage planning.
