Editorial Reviews

The Beachcomber
"In Architecture Walks we get an engaging confluence of architecture and history. You should buy Architecture Walks and stick it in the car, in case you ever find yourself with time on your hands—and have another copy in the house to plan a trip. It's a splendid addition to the New Jersey bookshelf and I can't wait to hit the road."
