Overview

Bricks and Brownstone: The New York Rowhouse 1783-1929 was first published in 1972, and remains the only book ever written on the New York row house. It has been met with impressive critical praise ever since and Rizzoli is proud to publish this revised and updated edition as the introductory volume in the new Rizzoli Classics program, dedicated to keeping in print important architecture titles.

Charles Lockwood looks at different architecture styles of the New York row house. The book is comprehensive, examining the history of New York's changing neighborhoods and the history of the various row house architectural styles--the Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, and Second Empire, as well as the eclectic but picturesque styles of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The text and illustrations also delve into the architectural details, paying meticulous attention to all features, including doorways, glass, mantels, staircases, ceiling ornaments, and ironwork.

Twenty years later, this edition is updated to include specially commissioned new color photographs of interiors and exteriors of some of New York's most impressive homes. Also included is Best of the Brownstones Walking Tours, carefully detailed and illustrated with color photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lockwood's beautiful 1972 history of the swanky brownstones and single-family row houses that graced Manhattan and Brooklyn is the first in the publisher's new "Classics" series, which will bring significant architecture volumes back into print. This title has been updated with 60 additional pictures commissioned specifically for this reprint. In addition to the more than 300 color and monochrome pix, this also sports floor plans for several of the buildings as well as analyses of the different styles of design. Architecture buffs and New York historians will love it. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    An Architecture Buff's Delight

    Having referred to Lockwood's first edition at my local library on several occasions, I purchased the new and expanded 2003 edition. The new color plates and walking tours are an excellent value-add to this expansive and thorough resource. The book is reproduced with its in-depth commentary and illustrations, and conveys a wonderful understanding of residential dwellings as New York City grew up Manhattan island. Homage is paid to european influences, building technologies, elemental resources, social mores and trends and the evolution of taste; all of which which helped define trends in home building in New York's golden age and invariably an ideal for the american house beautiful. Academic, interesting......a must-have for architecture buffs of every variety.
