Synopsis

The diversity and richness of New York's architecture comes alive in this one-of-a-kind, elegant, information-packed, photographic tour of New York City. From skyscrapers to parking structures, from the Stock Exchange to the historic townhouses of Harlem, the buildings of New York are as diverse as its culture - and they are artfully photographed here by Jorg Brockmann. Essential information about each one, along with neighbourhood maps and useful sidebars, make this the last word on New York buildings - including all five boroughs - large and small. It's feast for lovers of architecture and of great photography, as well as devotees of the most vibrant city in the world. The iconic architectural style of New York is admired by students of art & design around the world. There are 90,000 buildings within the five boroughs of New York and they are as diverse as the city's culture, ranging from warehouses to townhouses to mighty skyscrapers. Prize-winning photographer Jorg Brockmann has captured the power and personal essence of each building in a series of 1000 photographs, printed here in duotone process.

Terrific Look At The Wonder Of NYC Buildings & Architecture! 20. September 2002
Von Hans Castorp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A great value, and amazing overview of 1,000 buildings from the world's leading architectural center! Including the greatest (Empire State, Chrysler, Woolworth...) to hundreds of smaller gems all over the five boroughs like St Nicholas Cathedral, the Hong Kong Bank Building, Trinity Church, 2 White Street, on and on...Yes, the destroyed World Trade Center is also included.And Some nice commentary.A can't miss book! My only (very minor) criticisms are (1) All the photos are black and white (color would probably too costly), and (2) some structures are only shown by a facade or small ornament...In any event, a real treasure!!

As solid and beautiful as the buildings they describe 18. Mai 2006
Von Rocco Dormarunno - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Every once in a while I'll walk down a street of my busy city and spot a building that I'd never seen before, or, if I had seen it, never paid it much mind. But something about it--its age or its architecture--tells me that there's a story to be told about it. Judith Dupre, Bill Harris, and photographer Jorg Brockmann in their monumental book, "One Thousand New York Buildings", fill in the gaps left behind in the AIA books.

There are hundreds of buildings that, for whatever reason, have escaped landmark status and/or the attention of New Yorkers. Although "One Thousand New York Buildings" does discuss the familiar structures, like the Empire State Building, the Woolworth Building, and Grand Central Station, it also devotes equal time to those that have been ignored or overlooked. What are those tiny, Colonial style houses on Harrison and Greenwich Streets? How old is that building at 2 White Street? Who lived in those somber buildings at 130-132 MacDougal Street? "One Thousand New York Buildings" answers these and hundreds of other questions. In this sense, this book is much like "New York Streetscapes: Tales of Manhattan's Significant Buidlings and Landmarks" by Christopher Gray and Suzanne Braley, in as much as it pays equal tribute to the famous and not so famous structures.

One last note, this is a solidly put together book. The binding is sturdy, the paper thick and glossy, and the photos are clear and intriguing. It as well constructed as the buildings they pay homage to.

Comprehensive to say the least 16. Dezember 2005
Von Shannon Deason - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is fascinating, New York City is so blessed with amazing buildings, and this book is about as thorough as you can get. I found the synopsis of each building quite interesting, I mean the author could not exactly go indepth on each building, but he gave just enough for you to understand the significance in its inclusion. The B&W photos are nice and I appreciate that every building covered comes with requisite photo, that is so important in books of this type, no matter how well a building is discribed it just can rarely compare with an actual image. I recommend this book to anyone with any interst in New York or just fine buildings.

1000 New York Buildings by Harris et al. 30. Juli 2004
Von Dr. Joseph S. Maresca - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a good historical compendium of New York architecture at its best. It depicts clear photos of the Narrowest House, The Church of the Holy Apostles, the Art Studying League and the famous Swedish Cottage. The work would be invaluable to a wide constituency of historians, architects,

political theorists, travel agencies and tour guides. It is a

worthy purchase for the price charged.

Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Fans of New York City and its architecture won't want to miss the lovely photos and celebration of the city's diversity in One Thousand New York Buildings. Here's a 'pictionary' of New York's varied architectural styles, along with histories and trivia to accompany photography Jorg Brockmann's lovely black and white shots. From retail stores and theatres to Italian villas, cottages and more, each architectural piece includes a short note on the firm or designer. A 'must' for fans of architecture in general and New York City in particular.
