The definitive resource on the architectural history of New York City. As the definitive resource on the architectural history of New York City, The Landmarks of New York, Fifth Edition documents and illustrates the 1,276 individual landmarks and 102 historic districts that have been accorded landmark status by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission since its establishment in 1965. Arranged chronologically, by date of construction, the book offers a sequential overview of the city’s architectural history and richness, presenting a broad range of styles and building types: colonial farmhouses, Gilded Age mansions, churches, schools, libraries, museums, and the great twentieth-century skyscrapers that are recognized throughout the world. That so many of these structures have endured is due, in large measure, to the efforts of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Since the establishment of the commission, New York City has become the leader of the preservation movement in the United States, with more buildings and districts designated and protected than in any other city. Included here are such iconic structures as Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Carnegie Hall, as well as those that may be less well known but are of significant historical and architectural value: the Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House in Brooklyn, the oldest structure in New York City; the Bowne House in Queens, the birthplace of American religious freedom; the Watchtower in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem; the New York Botanical Garden in The Bronx; and Sailors Snug Harbor on Staten Island. In addition to completely updated maps and descriptions of each landmark and historic district included in the previous editions, the fifth edition adds 183 new individual landmarks and 39 new historic district maps. “…vividly chronicles the work of the Landmarks Preservation Commission since 1965 … Since the fourth edition was published, in 2004, Diamonstein-Spielvogel has expanded discussion of modern landmarks, adaptive reuse, and the integration of green technology into existing buildings.” — ARTnews “To read this book from cover to cover is to reread the past 400 years of New York history. [Diamonstein-Spielvogel] has written an excellent introduction … Highly recommended.” — Library Journal “…this hefty compendium connects past to present, promoting a greater appreciation of our architectural heritage.” — Veranda “A spectacular book … Diamonstein-Spielvogel has proven that New York City cares deeply about its past and its connection to the present and future.” — Gotham Magazine “…a classic primer … The latest edition, four years in the making, expands the beloved volume by some 200 pages and offers masses of new photographs.” — Architectural Digest “Witty, wise, and a joy to read, Landmarks of New York takes the reader through the landmarks movement and the city’s rich history while maintaining a focus on the present and future possibilities. This is a must-have for New Yorkers and history buffs alike both as a reference guide and for its inherent value as a well-crafted and oftentimes funny, insightful book.” — Hampton Sheet magazine

The mystery of the body in motion. The surprise of seeing what seems impossible. And the pure, joyful optimism of it all. Dancers Among Us presents one thrilling photograph after another of dancers leaping, spinning, lifting, kicking—but in the midst of daily life: on the beach, at a construction site, in a library, a restaurant, a park. With each image the reader feels buoyed up, eager to see the next bit of magic. Photographer Jordan Matter started his Dancers Among Us Project by asking a member of the Paul Taylor Dance Company to dance for him in a place where dance is unexpected. So, dressed in a commuter’s suit and tie, the dancer flew across a Times Square subway platform. And in that image Matter found what he’d been searching for: a way to express the feeling of being fully alive in the moment, unself-conscious, present. Organized around themes of work, play, love, exploration, dreaming, and more, Dancers Among Us celebrates life in a way that’s fresh, surprising, original, universal. There’s no photoshopping here, no trampolines, no gimmicks, no tricks. Just a photographer, his vision, and the serendipity of what happens when the shutter clicks.
