Summary

  • "Each building is presented through text that identifies the building style, gives the overall profile and image of the building, and discusses its construction; also included are quotes from the architects themselves and the architectural critics of the time. Each skyscraper is illustrated with full-page color photographs by noted photographer Norman McGrath as well as architectural drawings, models, archival images, postcards, and other ephemera." "Manhattan Skyscrapers is for anyone interested in the buildings that make New York the ultimate skyscraper city."--Jacket.
