New York: A Historical Atlas of Architecture

New York: A Historical Atlas of Architecture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this unique visual history of New York City's architecture, more than 300 diverse buildings—from landmark skyscrapers, museums, and churches to simple houses and majestic bridges—are depicted and discussed chronologically, by neighborhood, and by structure type. Some 350 years of architectural history unfold (quite literally) in words and vivid images in this groundbreaking book. Set in a useful timeline format, each entry includes a photograph and description, plus dates, architects, and other relevant data. Ten foldouts delve deeper into the history of some significant structures, and feature blueprints, interiors, and large color images.

The chronological section lays out each major architectural period, noting changes in the city's population, economy, and politics, and the historic events that shaped its architecture. The borough section includes hidden architectural gems as well as a map of each borough pinpointing each entry in the book. Parks, churches, museums, monuments, and more are explored in the structure section. Chock-full of architectural and historical facts organized in a fresh new way, New York: A Historical Atlas of Architecture will be indispensable for architecture enthusiasts and anyone interested in the glories of New York City.
