Tandy & Foster was an American architectural firm active from 1908 to 1914 in New York and New Jersey, based in New York City.

Founded in 1908 by Vertner Woodson Tandy (1885–1949) and George Washington Foster (1866–1923). Tandy was the firm African-American architect licensed by the State of New York and Foster was among the first African-American architects licensed by the State of New Jersey in 1908, and later New York (1916). Tandy and Foster dissolved their partnership in 1914 and thereafter both practiced privately, Foster attaining his license in New York by 1915.[1][2]
