About this Item: New York, N. Y. : Monacelli Press, 2002. First Edition. Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered.; 280 pages; Physical desc. : 280 p ; 30 cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. Subject: Architecture --New York (State) --New York --Harlem (New York, N.Y.) --Buildings, structures, etc. Summary: Long identified with African-American style and culture, Harlem is also a pillar of New York's social and architectural history. In this beautifully illustrated study, historian Michael Henry Adams presents an evocative portrait of the various and divergent Harlems of yesteryear, from the Native American settlements discovered by the Dutch in the seventeenth century to the vibrant community of present-day preservationists. In addition to the legacy of residential architecture Dutch farmhouses, Native American longhouses, mansions and country villas, thoughtfully planned row houses, and handsome apartment buildings, the author examines schools, industrial facilities, stores, churches, and more. Harlem's spectrum of designers ranges from the well known McKim, Mead and White, responsible for part of Strivers' Row; George B. Post and Sons, architects of the monumental Shepard Hall at the City College of the City University of New York to practitioners who, though today mostly forgotten, designed much of the urban fabric of Harlem and New York City. All have contributed to an extraordinarily rich streetscape that today preserves the best of Harlem's past. Seller Inventory # 155107

About this Item: The Monacelli Press, 2002. Oversized Hardcover. Condition: Good. The author, preservationist, and Harlem resident presents an architectural and social history of Harlem. Starting with its early days - the establishment of the first European farms in the mid-1660s, Thomas Jefferson's dinner at the Morris-Jumel mansion - the story encompasses great periods of social upheaval and change during which times numerous architectural styles came to the fore, right up to its present-day dynamism. In addition to the legacy of residential architecture, the book examines a number of other building styles, as well as a spectrum of designers. Color/b&w illus. 280p. Seller Inventory # 2468958

About this Item: New York, N.Y. : Monacelli Press, 2002. Mit zahlr. auch farb. Abb. Condition: Sehr gut. 280 S. Umschlag leicht eingerissen, sonst gutes Exemplar. - Like the 1920s Harlem described by Lincoln Kirstein as possessing "in its shadows the only authentic elegance in America," Harlem at the turn of the twenty-first century is again a dynamic neighborhood. Long identified with African-American style and culture, it is also a pillar of New York's social and architectural history. In this beautifully illustrated study, historian Michael Henry Adams presents an evocative portrait of the various and divergent Harlems of yesteryear, from the Native American settlements discovered by the Dutch in the seventeenth century to the vibrant community of present-day preservationists. Adams discusses distinct building styles and periods that parallel the growth of New York City and, in fact, the United States. In the late 1600s, Dutch farmhouses coexisted with Native American longhouses in colonial Nieuw Haarlem. By the mid-eighteenth century and later, mansions and country villas arose on large tracts of land. Particularly notable for presaging national enthusiasm for a revival of classicism are the neo-Palladian Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest residential structure in Manhattan (today restored and listed on the National Historic Register), and the Grange of founding father Alexander Hamilton. The nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw the growth of both thoughtfully planned row houses, such as the West 138th and 139th Street residences today known as Strivers' Row, and handsome apartment buildings. In addition to the legacy of residential architecture, the author examines a number of other building types-schools, industrial facilities, stores, churches. Harlem's spectrum of designers ranges from the well known - McKim, Mead & White, responsible for part of Strivers' Row; George B. Post & Sons, architects of the monumental Shepard Hall at the City College of the City University of New York-to practitioners who, though today mostly forgotten, designed much of the urban fabric of Harlem and New York City. Indeed, whether great or anonymous, Adams never forgets the people who designed, built, and utilized Harlem's historic structures: hard-working Dutch farm families; patriots George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson; wealthy Victorian homeowners such as James Anthony Bailey of Barnum & Bailey fame; Madam C. J. Walker, an African-American millionaire who hired New York's first certified black architect, Vertner Woodson Tandy, to design her capacious house, now lost; and contemporary preservationist-residents. All have contributed to an extraordinarily rich streetscape that today preserves the best of Harlem's past. ISBN 9781580930703 Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 2550. Seller Inventory # 910673
