I'm a new yorker who walks from home in the village to work in the world trade center. The AIA guide has opened my eyes to the buildings I pass on my routes each day. Now I just want to walk all over the city with this book in hand!

Complete guide to New York City Buildings. 11. August 2000
Von Grahame R. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a wonderful guide to many of the thousands of buildings in New York City. It is not, however, strictly an architectural piece. A study of the significant edifices in Manhattan this is not, since the photographs are mostly the size of postage stamps, and the text is limited. What it is is likely the most complete guide to the significant and not-so-significant buildings and monuments in New York's five major boroughs (Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island). The most surprising aspect of this book is its sheer size and complexity. There are hundreds of small photographs (all in clear black-and-white) of nearly every building mentionned, and dozens of others of a more substantial size. There are also over 100 maps of each area, in sufficient detail to be useful for navigation, and a compehensive glossary and index.
Overall, this is a monumental book, and one which is definitely worth the price for anyone who is interested in the landscape of one of the most exciting cities in the world - New York. For the type of book it attempts to be, The Forth Edition AIA Guide to New York City is virtually without flaw.

Maximum coverage at the cost of excessive brevity 21. Mai 2001
Von saskatoonguy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
With any guide of this type, there is the dilemma of whether to cover briefly as many buildings as possible, or to cover relatively few buildings in greater depth. This book opted to maximize the number of buildings covered, about 5000 in all, each of which has a 1 x ¾ inch photo and a description that is often a single sentence. Those seeking a more intense treatment of individual buildings will not be satisfied. The emphasis here is on quantity of buildings covered, and of these, roughly half are beyond Manhattan Island. The book, which includes many detailed maps, seems written for someone wandering the streets investigating these buildings on foot, but the very awkward dimensions of this book make it impractical to put in a pocket.

Definitive 10. August 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you live in New York or you are fascinated by its architecture, you really should buy The AIA Guide to NYC. It is a remarkable tome, including more than 5000 buildings and 3000 stamp album style photos of structures in all five boroughs, ranging from Brooklyn to far Queens and from Staten Island through Manhattan and up to the extreme Bronx. It will hit your coffee table with a serious thunk, and provide endless browsing enjoyment. If you're visiting New York on a quick trip or want a selective overview, I discovered a new book that makes a good companion volume: The Architecture Traveler, by Sydney LeBlanc, which covers 250 American buildings. The author is evidently a New Yorker. About 60 of the buildings are in and around the city. It presents fewer buildings but presents a full page story on each of them. I bought both books: the AIA guide for comprehensiveness, the more selective Architecture Traveler for it's intriguing stories and for the rest of America, which it also includes.

A truly classic treasure trove of NYC info. 29. Januar 1999
Von bass117@yahoo.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is amazing in its depth of analysis and thoroughness of its study of the vast amount of architectural treasures in all five boroughs. As a native New Yorker (born in The Bronx, raised in Queens, high school in Manhattan) I was pleasantly surprised to find so many buildings that I admired to have a history behind them. A lot of little tid-bits are included in the book, for example did you know the park benches in the Battery Park Promenade are from the 1939 NY World's Fair? I didn't! Did you know that the same Guastavino tile vaulting found outside the Oyster Bar in Grand Central can be found at the Municipal Building at Centre Street? And at the NY Telephone Building at 140 West Street?
A must-have for anyone who loves New York. A true walker's handbook that includes suggested walking tours all over the city. Find out the story behind that old building you walk by on your way home to your Flushing apartment! I also found it fascinating to compare this third edition with the earlier "revised" edition of 1978 to see how much had changed and been lost. The 3rd edition was almost twice the size by the way! I hope a 4th edition is in the works by now.

Indispensible guide for architecture buffs 22. August 1999
Von felden1@earthlink.net - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Not exhaustive but highly portable reference guide for anyone interested in the architecture of New York City in general and Manhattan is particular. The shame of it is the most recent edition dates from 1988. Much has happened since then, and the contemporary references are frequently outdated. If your interests go back further in time you would do well to find a used copy. My own interest at the moment is cast iron architecture, James Bogardus' work in particular, and there is no better way to spend a day than wandering Tribeca and Lower Manhattan with the AIA Guide in hand.
