About the Author:

Robert A. M. Stern is Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, and has authored many books on architectural subjects. Gregory Gilmartin is an architect at Moore, Pennoyer & Turino. Thomas Mellins is an architectural historian and writer.

From Library Journal:

This exuberant, lavishly produced volume chronicles the decades between the wars, when New York City was transformed into a mecca for art, entertainment, business, and commerce. The tumultuous period witnessed the contruction of many of the architectural monuments that have come to define New York: the Chrysler Building, the Empire State, Rockefeller Center, and the George Washington Bridge. While focusing on these landmark structures, the authors consider other components of the built environment as well: the public housing projects, highways, parks, and commercial, residential, and entertainment districts. Their delight in their subject is evidenced by the lively text and careful selection of over 600 period photographs and illustrations. Highly recommended.H.
