Overview

More than five years in the making, this photographic tour de force explores four centuries of architecture in the Empire State. From Hudson Valley mansions and New York skyscrapers to Adirondack Great Camps and Erie Canal cobblestone structures, Historic New York: Architectural Journeys in the Empire State visits hundreds of the state's landmarks through stunning color images and pithy captions. Destined to become the standard for photography books on New York State architecture, this ambitious work covers eleven regional chapters: Long Island, New York City, Hudson Valley, Capital District, Adirondacks, Mohawk Valley, Thousand Islands, Finger Lakes, Western Erie Canal, Southern Tier, Niagara Frontier. Each chapter includes a rich variety of structures, from the formal estates of the rich and famous to the modest dwellings of noted activists, from engineering feats like bridges and aqueducts to historic landmarks like forts, lighthouses, and arches.
