Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The lectures were absolutely dry. It was a rare moment when I felt that I could keep my attention focused. Though I feel that I learned alot, it seems that most of it was not because I went to the lectures. The discussion sections were really helpful in reinforcing the material (which, when discussed in a different manner, I found interesting). The workload, however was reasonable, but the slide tests (both midterm and final) covered an EXORBITANT amount of material - all to be memorized and spit back.

She is very sweet and her lectures are very informative. She's always available after class. And by the last day I was surprised to know that she learned a lot of students' names! I don't know what I spent more of the class doing, listening to her lecture of trying to see through the dark whether or not she had on a wedding ring.

Workload:

Term paper, roughly 6-8 pages, very easy. Look at a few buildings in Manhattan and talk about them. Very little research. Midterm, easy. Final, much harder. But study and you will know your stuff. Discussion sections with reading, they say it's mandatory but you can get away with not doing it.
