Synopsis

From the reviews of the first edition of Architecture of New York City "It should provide joy to anyone even vaguely interested in this city and its artifacts. It is very likely to turn them into enthusiasts." - New York Times Book Review " weaves the little-known stories of 80 buildings and landmarks into a colorful tapestry of New York's whirlwind history. This richly illustrated guide can be read from beginning to end with great pleasure." - Publishers Weekly " Reynolds takes a new look at the older glories of New York. The architecture is freshly seen and is clearly researched. Reynolds' splendid photographs present highly original views of familiar (and not so familiar) important structures and sites." - Adolph Placzek, former president of the Society of Architectural Historians The history of New York City is a rich pageant of culture, commerce, social change, and human drama stretching back five hundred years. And when we know where to look for it, it is all there for us to see, vividly etched into the cityscape.

Now in this celebration of New York's architecture, Donald Martin Reynolds helps us to see and appreciate, as never before, the city's monuments and masterpieces, and to hear the tales they have to tell. With the help of nearly 200 striking photographs (20 of them new to this edition), Dr. Reynolds takes us on an unforgettable tour of five centuries of architectural change and innovation - from 16th-century Dutch canals and 18th-century farmhouses, to the elevator buildings of the 1870s (precursors of skyscrapers) and the Art Deco, Bauhaus, and Post-modern buildings that make up New York City's celebrated skyline. Floor by floor stone by stone, detail by detail Dr. Reynolds lovingly describes 90 of the city's most striking buildings, bridges, parks, and places. He tells us when, why, and how they were built and who built them, and in the process, he evokes the illustrious and exciting history of this restless, ceaselessly seductive metropolis.

I bought this book a few days before my first visit to New York City. However, just reading very first part of this book gave me good knowledge of both history and architectures of NYC.
This book starts with the born of New York City in 17th century, and covers many famous (and not so famous) architectures with about 200 photos taken by the author. It covers Georgian influence of 18th Century, Greek revival of 19th century, the Chicago school...etc. The Art Deco Skyscrapers, such as the Empire State building and the Chrysler building are well described. A whole chapter is devoted to Rockefeller Center. The history of MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) is interesting...
For me, this book seems to have some small shortcomings. This book lacks "up to date" information. (This revised edition was first published in 1994.) Also, as a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, I hope Guggenheim Museum have been covered more.

HASH(0x8f272804) von 5 Sternen wonderful 29. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a wonderful book that extensively covers the architecture of buildings in New York, from past to present. Full of interesting background information. I can recommend this book to anyone that is interested in New York architecture. Unfortunately, photographs are kept to an essential minimum. Other than that, it was everyting I hoped for.

HASH(0x8f272bdc) von 5 Sternen Better than I would have expected 23. August 2014
Von Hopeless with computers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Reynolds has created the kind of book that in my younger days- before arthritis and side effects from blood pressure medications had a chance to take their toll- I would have gladly read at leisure a little bit at a time to save it for as long as possible. My background is in biology and history, but I have been fascinated by architecture and building things since my childhood.

After a brief historical sketch of New York’s earliest, i.e., Dutch architecture the book is well organized by building categories- housing, theaters, churches etcetera. You can see both the forest and the trees rather than getting lost in a street-by-street tour. Guidebooks like this too often read like laundry lists of facts and figures that can dehumanize a subject like this and turn the book into a textbook. But based on the little bit I have been able to read Reynolds’ hasn’t created a typical guide book. It’s very readable.

The book’s one serious drawback is, as other readers have commented, its lack of illustrations, and its lack of color illustrations really emphasizes this one shortcoming. I realize that photos showing the construction and early history of an awful lot of NY buildings were done with primitive technology and it’s sad that so many early buildings have been lost without us having an adequate photographic record of them. That can’t be helped. But, I would have really liked for this book to have more photographs of the buildings that are still around- and which people like me will never be able to see in person.

HASH(0x8f277060) von 5 Sternen Excellent in Kindle form to take on tours of NYC 1. August 2014
Von Chris Pollard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I Had Professor Reynolds in college years ago for an architecture of NY course and we used this as our text book along with walking tours. Excellent in Kindle form to take on tours of NYC. You will never look at a NYC bldg the same.
