New Yorkers and tourists from around the world know about our skyscrapers, our Statue of Liberty, and our Niagara Falls, but how many of us know that the Empire State is also home to dozens of stately castles. Scott Ian Barry's pictorial Castles of New York introduces readers to no few than twenty-nine of these stately mansions; from Central Park's Belvedere Castle to Olana, Hudson River School artist Frederic Edwin Church's 19th century Moorish concoction. After drawing browsers in with magnificent sunlit photographs, he tells the story of each of these imposing architectural wonders.
