New York Streetscapes: Tales of Manhattan’s Significant Buildings & Landmarks
Christopher Gray (au). The Chrysler Bldg.’s “secret spire” was the trump card in a match between two architects. Writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery sailed paper airplanes out the window of his apartment building on Central Park. Ernest Vernon, the butler for Augustus Van Horne Stuyvesant Jr., wept alone in the church during his master’s funeral service. These are only a few of the unforgettable stories told in this fascinating vol. Treats architecture not as complex theory, but as a human condition. Examines not only intriguing buildings & sites throughout Manhattan but more importantly the memorable lives of the people who built & inhabited old New York. Includes 200 of Gray’s best “Streetscapes” columns originally printed in the “N.Y. Times.” Each column includes b&w photos.
