The Skyscraper and the City: The Woolworth Building and the Making of Modern New York
The Skyscraper and the City: The Woolworth Building
Once the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Woolworth Building is noted for its striking but incongruous synthesis of Beaux-Arts architecture, fanciful Gothic ornamentation, and audacious steel-framed engineering. Here, in the first history of this great urban landmark, Gail Fenske argues that its design serves as a compelling lens through which to view the distinctive urban culture of Progressive-era New York. Fenske shows here that the building’s multiplicity of meanings reflected the cultural contradictions that defined New York City’s modernity. For Frank Woolworth—founder of the famous five-and-dime store chain—the building served as a towering trademark, for advocates of the City Beautiful movement it suggested a majestic hotel de ville, for technological enthusiasts it represented the boldest of experiments in vertical construction, and for tenants it provided an evocative setting for high-style consumption. Tourists, meanwhile, experienced a spectacular sightseeing destination and avant-garde artists discovered a twentieth-century future. In emphasizing this faceted significance, Fenske illuminates the process of conceiving, financing, and constructing skyscrapers as well as the mass phenomena of consumerism, marketing, news media, and urban...

American Illuminations: Urban Lighting, 1800-1920 (The MIT Press)
American Illuminations: Urban Lighting, 1800-1920 (The MIT
How Americans adapted European royal illuminations for patriotic celebrations, spectacular expositions, and intensely bright commercial lighting to create the world's most dazzling and glamorous cities.Illuminated fêtes and civic celebrations began in Renaissance Italy and spread through the courts of Europe. Their fireworks, torches, lamps, and special effects glorified the monarch, marked the birth of a prince, or celebrated military victory. Nineteenth-century Americans rejected such monarchial pomp and adapted spectacular lighting to their democratic, commercial culture. In American Illuminations, David Nye explains how they experimented with gas and electric light to create illuminated cityscapes far brighter and more dynamic than those of Europe, and how these illuminations became symbols of modernity and the conquest of nature.Americans used gaslight and electricity in parades, expositions, advertising, elections, and political spectacles. In the 1880s, cities erected powerful arc lights on towers to create artificial moonlight. By the 1890s they adopted more intensive, commercial lighting that defined distinct zones of light and glamorized the city's White Ways, skyscrapers, bridges, department stores, theaters, and dance halls. Poor and blighted areas disappeared into...

Becoming John Marin: Modernist at Work
Becoming John Marin: Modernist at
John Marin was a major figure among the cutting-edge circle of American modernist artists who showed his work in Alfred Stieglitz’s New York galleries from 1909 until 1950. A new collection of the artist’s work at the Arkansas Arts Center, given by Marin’s daughter-in-law, forms the basis of this first book of essays and images to concentrate on Marin’s drawings in the context of Marin’s life, his watercolors, and his etchings.We follow Marin to his most famous subject matter: New York City and the coast of Maine. Foundational drawings and an unfinished watercolor of the towering Woolworth Building, still under construction when they were made in 1912, begin the story of a renowned group of watercolors first exhibited in 1913 at Alfred Stieglitz’s 291 Gallery and then at the ground-breaking 1913 Armory Show. Other images take us to lesser-known locales, such as the Ramapo Mountains in New York and New Jersey where Marin often painted when he couldn’t get to Maine. More obscure aspects of the artist’s career explored in this collection include portraits of friends and family, charming drawings of animals, and circus scenes.Becoming John Marin invites readers to look over this important artist’s shoulder as he created and honed the sketches he would interpret into...

Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on American streets.The area around City Hall is commonly referred to as Manhattan’s Civic Center. Most of the neighborhood consists of government offices (city, state and federal), as well as an increasing number of upscale residential dwellings being converted from older commercial structures. Architectural landmarks - ecclesiastical, commercial and governmental - surround City Hall. New York’s first City Hall was built by the Dutch in the 17th century on Pearl Street. The city’s second City Hall, built in 1700, stood on Wall and Nassau streets. That building was renamed Federal Hall after New York became the first official capital of the United States. Plans for building a new City Hall were discussed by the New York City Council as ...

Nostrand's Map New York City
Nostrand's Map New York
New York City subway map, published by the Arthur Ohman Map Co. by George J. Nostrand, a lithographer and publisher of city and subway maps, who worked at the same address (258 Broadway) as Ohman until 1925. The map also shows house numbers at each station and also for each block north of 96th Street. Undated, probably circa 1920s but *may* be prior to 1916 as it appears to show the R line across Queens, which opened in 1916, as still under construction. The George Washington Bridge is marked in and labeled the Hudson River Bridge, as it was called until 1930. With the Woolworth Building, then the world's tallest, on the cover. Oversized (32" x 16.5"). Scarce.

Die Fassadendiebe (German Edition)
Die Fassadendiebe (German
Auch weil um ihn herum alles zu bröckeln beginnt - seine Familie, genau wie seine Stadt - hilft der dreizehnjährige Griffin seinem Vater bei dessen Mission als »Gebäuderetter«. Der schmale, wendige Junge bekommt die Aufgabe, möglichst viele steinerne Art-Deco-Skulpturen und Wasserspeier zu stehlen, ganz gleich ob von der Fassade eines unbekannten Mietshauses oder eines berühmten Wolkenkratzers. Denn – so der Vater – diese Zeugen Manhattans sind in Zeiten der »Sanierung« vom Aussterben bedroht. Auf ihren Touren kann Griffin dem Vater nah sein, und gleichzeitig das dringend benötigte Geld für die Hypothekenraten verdienen, damit er, seine Mutter und seine Schwester nicht aus ihrem Haus geworfen werden. Doch der Spleen seines Vaters wird zur Obsession; Griffins Freundschaften, seine erste Liebe drohen zu zerbrechen. Als er bei einem der nächtlichen Raubzüge in Lebensgefahr gerät, beginnt Griffin zu verstehen, dass man nicht alles im Leben bewahren kann.
