New York Streetscapes Summary

New York Streetscapes: Tales of Manhattan's Significant Buildings and Landmarks by Christopher Gray

Christopher Gray's engaging tales of historic Gotham locales transport readers back in time for a stroll through the streets of old New York. The noted architectural historian, who writes the popular "Streetscapes" column in The New York Times, here gathers 190 of the best-loved of those columns to captivate readers with his wealth of information about sites and buildings and the intriguing lives of the people connected to them. From the Bridge Cafe (New York's oldest surviving bar) on Water Street to the Revolutionary War-era Morris-Jumel Mansion in upper Manhattan, Gray turns the spotlight on both obscure and familiar landmarks, and each of his witty, urbane essays is illustrated with at least one period photograph, Gray's vast enthusiasm and love for New York's vast architecture is evident in all that he writes, as is his concern for the preservation of the city's architectural treasures.
