Pressestimmen

A beautifully produced reference work . . . here, in maps, drawings, photographs, and illuminating text, are the five little boroughs and how they grew. "E. L. Doctorow" A treasure of a book. The historical notes are sharp, full, and often surprising. The graphics are fresh, colorful, and give one a new sense of New York, the world city in its everlasting drama. Alfred Kazin"

Synopsis

The Historical Atlas of New York City, second edition, takes us, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, through four hundred years of Gotham's rich past, describing such crucial events as the city's initial settlement of 270 people in thirty log houses; John Jacob Astor's meteoric rise from humble fur trader to the richest most powerful man in the city; and the fascinating ethnic mixture that is modern Queens. The full-colour maps, charts, photographs, drawings, and mini-essays of this encyclopaedic volume also trace the historical development and cultural relevance of such iconic New York thoroughfares as Fifth Avenue, Wall Street, Park Avenue, and Broadway. This thoroughly updated edition brings the Atlas up to the present, including three all-new two-page spreads on Rudolph Giuliani's New York, the revival of Forty-second Street, and the rebuilding of Ground Zero. A fascinating chronicle of the life of a metropolis, the handsome second edition of The Historical Atlas of New York City provides a vivid and unique perspective on the nation's cultural capital.

For a New York City-freak like me, this is the perfect book: historical data broken down, processed and presented in maps, charts and graphs. Data that would be difficult to find anywhere, let alone understand easily, is here presented in the clearest possible way. Maps to compare the settlement of the city from 1664 and - say - 1703; a map of ethnic districts in 1920; a graph showing Beaux Arts-buildings on Park Avenue - you all find it in this book, and a lot more.

Das Buch ist chronologisch aufgebaut (im Prinzip), wird aber dann immer Themenweise in Kapiteln zusammengefasst, z.B. "öffentliche Verkehrsmittel" oder "Brückenbau" oder "Kleindeutschland".

Dadurch bleibt das Buch sehr übersichtlich, und der Leser kann wählen, welche Kapitel er genauer lesen möchte, und welche ihn weniger interessieren.

Ich selber lese die Kapitel, die mich interessieren, genauer durch, bei anderen überfliege ich nur den Text und sehe mir die Bilder und deren Beschreibung an, weil ich mich für dieses spezielles Thema (z.B. Bürgerkrieg) nicht so interessiere.

Aber genau das ist bei diesem Buch möglich, dass man nur selektiv liest - und das finde ich toll!

Ein Kapitel umfasst meistens 2 bis 4 Seiten, und ist somit auch ideal für Bus oder Bahn...

Mein Fazit: Kaufen!

HASH(0x9b203b70) von 5 Sternen Almost Great 16. Januar 2006
Von Zuggzugg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book includes many really nice maps of early New York. Much of the historical information included in the maps is uniquely presented here and lacking in many other publications. However, there are many editorial mistakes and misspellings that I have observed, which makes me wonder about the accuracy of the rest of the information. Additionally, the narrative text is simple, limited and sometimes disjointed and difficult to follow. Buy this book simply for its beautiful graphics and depictions of the city as it used to be. Some periods of the city's history could be greatly expanded, especially the city's role in the revolution and the siege of Fort Washington. Anyone with knowledge of the city will find it of limited value beyond the maps and illustrations. A little polishing of this book and some additional material for some historical periods in a future edition would make this book an outstanding work. For now, I would call it good but lacking in important areas.

HASH(0x9b203bc4) von 5 Sternen Wonderful 5. Juli 2006
Von E.S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is simply one of the best NYC historical reference work available. The book is divided into periods and will display numerous maps , photos and drawings of the buildings and landscape of the city at that time in history. Plenty of history is included to make certain you are keyed in to the era, and how the buildings fit in. Just a beautiful book. Great binding and very sturdy.
Strong buy

HASH(0x9b206018) von 5 Sternen A researcher's short cut 7. Januar 2008
Von Carol Buchanan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Historical Atlas of New York City solved a huge problem for me. I'm writing a novel set partly in New York in 1864, and while I lived in the City in 1964, that's a hundred years too late for this novel! I live now where research facilities are slim, and I needed something to show me where people lived, shopped, worked, entertained themselves.

This book answered my questions. It showed me which landmark buildings were on which streets then and gave me the background for the characters who inhabit my novel and the City. It has prevented me from having a character walk past the Flatiron building, or attend a ball at the Waldorf-Astoria.

It also confirmed that elderly gentlemen probably played chess in Tompkins Square Park just as they did a hundred years later, and that the brownstones around Washington Square were inhabited by wealthy families.

It has enabled me to put some of my own reminiscences (faithfully recorded in my journals of the time) into the book while avoiding some anomalies.

Not all my questions were resolved in this book, but studying the maps gave me enough information about the trains in New York to avoid some errors, like describing Grand Central Station, because it gives the date that amazing edifice was built.

A valuable addition to my own research library!

HASH(0x9b2063e4) von 5 Sternen Nice Pictures 3. Januar 2012
Von Justa Buyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As another review said, this book has some very nice period pictures but I think calling it an "atlas" is a real stretch. I found it to be poorly written and poorly organized. It strikes me as a book with chapters written by a variety of authors pulled together and glued into a book but without an editor to review the content. For example, from my experience, a good historical will explain the origin of an interesting item the first time it is used. Not so here and I found myself running to the computer every so often to see why "Canal Street" was named Canal Street or to see what happened to the Collect Pond. It more or less flows in time from chapter to chapter but you would never call it seamless and I found myself going back to see if I had missed a chapter while reading. As always, you are bound to learn something by reading this book, even if it is mostly how to detect poor grammar.

HASH(0x9b206390) von 5 Sternen Interesting But Bugged by Backward Photo 29. Juli 2011
Von Stan Horzepa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
USPS delivered this book from Amazon today and I just skimmed it from cover-to-cover. It looks interesting and is nicely put together, but it bugs me that the photo of the lower Manhattan skyline on page 146 is backwards; the World Trade Center should be on the right, not the left. When I see a glaring error like that in a book, I wonder about the integrity of the rest of the book. So only 4 stars from me, instead of 5.
