New York Deco profiles the architecture of the city during its most stylish and dazzling decades: the late 1920s and '30s. New York City landmarks were born of this age--the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, and the Lenox Lounge--as well as dozens of lesser-known office buildings and apartment houses. Together, they make the skyline of the Big Apple what it is today. Riichard Berenholtz's stunning photographs of the finest examples of NYC's art deco architecture will be accompanied by detailed captions as well as text from writers, artists, and personalities of the era, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Willem de Kooning, and Ogden Nash, and among others. A perfect gift for the New Yorker and tourist alike, this gem of a book is a window into one of the city's most divine periods.
