The official guide to New York's must-see buildings

Yes, it's a wonderful town, and this book gives you more than 1,200 reasons why. With a host of new landmarks, 80 two-color, easy-to-read maps, and more than 200 photographs, this new edition of the official and only complete guide to New York's landmarks will make every visitor feel like a native--and turn every native into a wide-eyed tourist. New to this edition are more than 75 recently designated landmarks and 10 new historic districts, with a new focus on neighborhoods with local history and details explaining some of the more remarkable buildings in the districts. Includes a Foreword by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission is the New York City agency responsible for protecting and preserving New York City's architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings. Founded in 1965 after the destruction of the original Penn Station, the Commission consists of 11 commissioners, including at least three architects, a historian, a realtor, a planner or landscape architect, as well as a representative of each borough.

I used this guide in the 90's to explore NYC. This later edition has been loaned again and again to friends. WORTH a look! ... and take it for a walk. Читать весь отзыв
