Synopsis

New York City is the world's undisputed capital of the skyscraper and is synonymous with this archetypical American form of architecture. Yet New York's exceptional standing is not only due to the sheer number of skyscrapers; it is also the juxtaposition of so many high-rise buildings from different stylistic periods that gives the New York skyline its particular dynamism. This stunning and definitive guide presents the most prominent and significant skyscrapers in the world's most vertical city. Managing to obtain access, often exclusive, to over 60 rooftops and viewpoints throughout Manhattan, Dirk Stichweh and Jorg Machirus photographed the incredible views afforded them from these heights, from Wall Street to uptown. Featuring over 80 high-rises from the Empire State Building to the recently erected One World Trade Center, this volume shares the stories behind their construction and discusses their influence on New York's cityscape and international architectural history. Designed and written to appeal to anyone who is fascinated by the city, this beautiful book captures New York from a perspective few will ever see in person.
