These Iconic Landmarks in New York City Are Built Or Designed By Women

Often times when people pass iconic buildings, monuments, or landmarks, they see the name of the man or men who built them, even if they only played a small part in its construction.

New York City in particular is filled with streets named after famous men, memorials honoring memorable men, and everything else related to... historical men. But what about historic women?

In a continuation of the effort to put her on the map, MAKERS decided to research some of the many landmarks in the Big Apple that were actually made by women, who seldom get the credit.

Click through the gallery above to see some of the many NYC landmarks — as selected by Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation for Built by Women NYC (BxW NYC) — that were female "designed and/or constructed by women."
