Overview

A celebration of the buildings of New York City and their history with over 600 color illustrations.
Manhattan is studded with spectacular buildings—the Woolworth Building, the Flatiron, the Chrysler, the Empire State Building, and the World Trade towers. It is the home of scores of clubs, churches, commercial and industrial buildings, and private houses whose history or unique architecture make them especially noteworthy. With over 600 full-color photographs and descriptions of existing structures, New York for New Yorkers tracks the rich architectural history of the city as well as trends in style and construction to provide us with a better understanding of what we see, who built it, and why. And by explaining how monuments, streets, and districts were named, this book makes us more aware of the people who most influenced New York City's past. Not just for New Yorkers, this book is for anyone who is fascinated by the architecture of the physical city.
This new second edition includes the major new buildings of the last five years.

An eye-opening view of the rich architectural development of the city--beginning with the West India Trade Company and Peter Minuit's purchase of the island in the early 17th century, this book tracks the history of the built city through over 400 color photos and descriptions of existing structures to provide a better understanding of what is seen, who built it and why.
