Summary
"New York City is a lot of things, but first and foremost it's a city of skyscrapers. From the cake-icing Gothic detailing of the Woolworth Building to the shimmering Art Deco of the Chrysler Building to the towering sweeps and curves of its latest masterpieces, tall buildings make Manhattan the ideal image of a city. Manhattan Skyscrapers was the first book to document the highs and highers of the Big Apple's search for the sky. With authoritative text by New York Times contributor Eric P. Nash, newly commissioned photos by Norman McGrath, and archival art showing the visual history of the city, the book became the reference work on the skyline." "This new edition of Manhattan Skyscrapers covers 10 new buildings and re-presents 75 historical structures, including such recent renovations as Louis Sullivan's Bayard-Condit Building and Norman Foster's addition to the Hearst Magazine Building. A new introduction by Skyscraper Museum Director Carol Willis adds insight into the city in the 21st century. This book is a must for both the serious student of architecture and the casual collector of all things New York."--Jacket
