About the Author
Raised near Poughkeepsie in upstate New York, Thomas E. Rinaldi visited New York City frequently before moving there in 2004. His life-long interest in the city’s built landscape drove him to pursue a career in architecture: he works as a designer for Thornton Tomasetti, a leading engineering and architecture firm. Rinaldi holds degrees in history from Georgetown University and in historic preservation from Columbia University. He is the coauthor, with Robert J. Yasinsac, of Hudson Valley Ruins: Forgotten Landmarks of an American Landscape.

Based on my friend's initial impression - he has just begun to read the text - the book is very informative and well illustrated.
The only major/minor drawback is the very modest overall dimensions of the paperback version of the book.
Makes reading the text more difficult and the images are quite small as well.
