Let Historian David Garrard Lowe take you on an architectural and cultural tour of Beaux Arts New York. The author's lively text and detailed captions accompanying over 145 superb photographs and drawings illuminate the period between 1880 and the First World War, when New York was the de facto capital of the United States and the spirit of the famous Parisian Beaux-Arts ateliers was recreated in some of the city's greatest architectural firms, including Hunt; McKim, Mead & White; and Carrere & Hastings. Beaux Arts New York is a must for history and architecture buffs, a perfect gift for anyone visiting or simply enchanted by New York.
