Since the AIA Guide to New York City was first published in 1967,
it has been recognized as the ultimate guide to the metropolis's
buildings, in all five boroughs -- Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the
Bronx, and Staten Island -- from nineteenth-century brownstones and
tenements to modern high-rise apartments and museums. The latest edition
of this urban classic takes a fresh look at the architectural treasures
that define New York -- from its most characteristic landmarks to its
less famous local favorites.
To prepare this edition -- the
first revision since 1987 -- Norval White has visited and revisited more
than 5,000 buildings, making this by far the most complete guide of its
kind. This generously illustrated handbook presents the structures of
the New York City--from the magnificent to the obscure -- in over 3,000
new photographs, more than 130 new maps, and hundreds of revised and new
entries. Beyond the skyscrapers and historical buildings, the guide
also leads the way to the city's bridges, parks, and public monuments.
From the tip of the Empire State Building to the brownstones in Brooklyn, the AIA Guide to New York City
reveals how the city's spirit, fortitude, and character are captured
and expressed in its architecture. Thoughtful and humorous descriptions
include fascinating bits of local information that bring the city's
history to life, telling the stories behind the bricks and mortar.
Together, the maps, photographs, and expert critiques invite you on a
special grand tour of the city at your own pace.
This guide is a
definitive record of New York's architectural heritage and provides a
compact, authoritative directory for lovers of New York City all over
the world. Its portability and encyclopedic quality make it an ideal
traveling companion for any walker in the city. For the sightseer, the
architect, or anyone on a casual stroll, the AIA Guide to New York City is the book to grab on your way out the door.
