Overview

Here are more than one hundred specially commissioned color and black-and-white photographs of the best interiors in Manhattan, from spectacular skyscrapers to enticing shops, domestic interiors, and the wealth of architectural styles in the city's hundreds of bars, cinemas, and restaurants. The revealing text points out features of architectural and design interest in the photographs and provides fresh insights into the history and character of this unique city. Inside New York is a rich source of inspiration for anyone interested in interior design plus a wonderful gift for visitors to the city. The contents include: Shops, Restaurants, Hotels, Clubs, Offices, Private Houses, Theatres and Cinemas, Banks, Schools and Colleges. There is a gazetteer, bibliography, and index. This book is a revelation of the work of architects, designers, painters, and craftsmen, whose combined skills have created extraordinary interiors throughout the city. They range from the grand illusions of the muralists, to the pomp of Grecian columns and streamlined detailing of Deco lobbies, to Postmodern creations. These varied interior spaces are wittily and knowledgeably described by the author, Joe Friedman, and brilliantly captured by the photographer, Richard Berenholtz. Whether you know New York well or hardly at all, this book will bring unexpected and delightful insight into one of the greatest cities of the world.
