What I said about the AIA GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY is the same I have to say about Guide to New York City Landmarks by New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. I have been a New Yorker all my life and thought I'd known it all. There were buildings/structures that I knew to be older than most and probably landmarks, but never got around to checking them out. Then I picked up the Guide to New York City Landmarks
by New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission sometime in 2003. Ever since, I have kept it with me at all times: in my back pocket, my briefcase, my jacket... Sometimes I go to some of these places in advance, with the intent of looking at them after I'd read about them. Other times, when on my way to or from work or lunch, I will see a building, stop, and look to read about what it is. My hunches aren't always correct, of course: not all the buildings I think are landmarks are. But I always keep this Guide on hand to find out.

Sober, readable and comprehensive, all the matters are dealt with competence. A good beginning for people interested in the architecture and in the development of the city.

Format: Paperback
Profusely illustrated, filled with informative and fascinating text, and sporting great sidebars on key points of NYC history and architecture, this volume will aid and bedazzle tourists, students, and history buffs -- perhaps even getting the most jaded of New Yorkers to see their neighborhoods in new light!
