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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
