Book Description

Welcome to the fascinating world of Architecture Walks--from reflections of three hundred years of history to expressions of the most modern design, authors Lucy D. Rosenfeld and Marina Harrison guide you on a tour of inspiring, informative, and aesthetically intriguing architectural treasures in and around the New York area.

Early colonial saltboxes, as-yet-unfinished contemporary structures on college campuses, nineteenth-century follies, Gilded Age palaces, lighthouses, windmills, romantic ruins-- the pages of this delightful book, filled with adventures, treat readers to sites within approximately two hours' driving time from New York City. With book in hand readers will marvel at college campuses, small villages, planned and utopian communities, National Historic Sites, castles and forts, churches and temples of architectural interest, and even a Buddhist monastery, all in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, the eastern edge of Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

By including descriptions of architectural styles, suggestions for special adventures, and lists of jaunts arranged by architect or designer, architectural style, and particular types of sites, Rosenfeld and Harrison help make day trips even more enjoyable. Whether explorers or armchair adventurers, readers of all ages will find something that captures their interest in the nearly one hundred sites and forty photos included in Architecture Walks.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Architecture Walks we get an engaging confluence of architecture and history. You should buy Architecture Walks and stick it in the car, in case you ever find yourself with time on your hands—and have another copy in the house to plan a trip. It's a splendid addition to the New Jersey bookshelf and I can't wait to hit the road."
(The Beachcomber 2010-06-25)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 'take-along' book November 7, 2010
By Lynda J
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my husband, as he is always looking for someplace new (to us) to explore nearby. He found a listing for Wing's Castle in the Millbrook area & a call to them revealed that they had closed for the season, even though the guide indicated that they were still open. The owner was not aware that he was listed in the book. We look forward to trying other area sites, however we will call first to confirm.
