Livro | New York Then and Now | Marcia Reiss

Na última viagem a NY em um dos dias na Borders não consegui deixar a fantástica edição de New Yor Then and Now na prateleira, comprei no ato. A obra de Marcia Reiss é uma coletânea dos principais pontos da cidade, comparando fotos do passado com imagens do presente, sensacional. O texto é muito bom e trás curiosidades dos locais mais famosos da Big Apple.

Description

In just the few years since the first edition of New York Then and Now,the city has undergone important changes. The most dramatic was the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Since the loss of the twin towers, the island of Manhattan has continued to transform itself, with the renewal of entire neighborhoods, from industrial complexes to residential centers. This newly updated edition highlights the development of the New York s lavish hotels, palatial department stores, skyscrapers, and condominiums, featuring historic photographs side-by-side with images of the modern cityscape

From the Publisher:

Since New Amsterdam became New York in 1664, constant change and development has been its driving force. Today, it is America’s densest urban environment and most vital city, boasting one of the most recognizable skylines in the world. New York Then & Now places today’s post 9/11 cityscape within the context of history, reflecting the changing and enduring aspects of life in the Big Apple. Remarkable past-and-present photographs showcase Manhattan’s development and the amazing architecture that defines the city. See side-by-side images of the lavish Waldorf-Astoria, Radio City Music Hall, Union Square, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Penn Station, Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building. The Twin Towers, part of the World Trade Center, redefined the Manhattan skyline when they opened in 1976. After the tragedies of 9/11, the skyline is defined as much by their absence. New York continues to be one of the most popular destinations in the world-everyone who has experienced the energy and magic of the Big Apple will want this compact edition of New York Then & Now. It’s the perfect souvenir or gift!
