The urban wilderness; a history of the American city by Sam Bass Warner( Book )

27 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in English and held by 1,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sam Bass Warner, Jr. has been enlightening Americans about their urban heritage for thirty-five years. In 1962, Streetcar Suburbs told us about Boston's rail-led expansion beyond the two-mile-radius pedestrian city of the 1850s, illustrating the story with one chart, eleven maps, and sixty-six photographs. In 1968 The Private City arrived, a richly illustrated and more quantitative study of Philadelphia from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. The year 1977 brought The Way We Really Live , a set of lectures on Boston's history that combined slides, statistics, and sage reflections a sort of backdrop for Province of Reason (1984), which presented biographies of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Bostonians

In the last third of the nineteenth century the American city grew from a crowded merchant town, in which neatly everybody walked to work, to the modern divided metropolis. The street railway created this division of the metropolis into an inner city of commerce and slums and an outer city of commuters' suburbs. This book tells who built the new city, and why, and how

American urban form : a representative history by Sam Bass Warner( Book )

16 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American urban form--the spaces, places, and boundaries that define city life--has been evolving since the first settlements of colonial days. The changing patterns of houses, buildings, streets, parks, pipes and wires, wharves, railroads, highways, and airports reflect changing patterns of the social, political, and economic processes that shape the city. In this book, Sam Bass Warner and Andrew Whittemore map more than three hundred years of the American city through the evolution of urban form. They do this by offering an illustrated history of "the City"--A hypothetical city that exemplifies the American city's transformation from village to merchant seaport, industrial city, multicentered metropolis, and, finally, regional metropolis that participates in both the local and the global. The book thereby offers a yardstick against which readers can measure the history of their own cities. Warner and Whittemore have constructed their hypothetical City from the histories of Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, focusing on commonalities that make up key patterns in American urban development. In an engaging text accompanied by Whittemore's detailed, meticulous drawings, they chart the City's changing boundaries, densities, building styles, transportation infrastructures, and population patterns. Planning for the future of cities, they remind us, requires an understanding of the forces that shaped the city's past; these are the tools of urban change. The city's protean, ever-changing nature offers each generation a fresh chance to reform (and re-form) it."--Jacket

Imaging the city : continuing struggles and new directions( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planners face a controversial task because their professional role requires them to be spokespersons for the public interest. In a welter of conflicting pictures and voices, how might the public interest be discovered? Once identified, how might it be expressed so that competing publics attend to it? There are no easy answers, but the experience of planners today suggests ways of working and innovations of promise. The focus on planning practice prompted the editors to analyze images that are now at work in our cities. For Vale and Warner, all city design and constructions offer material that people should include in images of their environment. The built and building city are part of the experience of all city dwellers; it is theirs to incorporate, interpret, or ignore. Essays included in this text trace the interplay between physical objects of planners and architects and the social experience and outlooks of image makers and their audiences. Imaging the City explores urban image making from civic boosterism of medieval cities to iconic imagery of Times Square. Vale and Warner bring together urban historians, geographers, city planners, architects, and cultural commentators to analyze the creation of urban imagery from the signature skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur to the re-creation of the South Bronx and the use of city images in film, literature, television, and on the Internet. Urban dwellers, urban planners, architects, municipal officials, sociologists, urban historians--all will perceive their worlds with a heightened sense of awareness after reading this book

Mapping Boston by Alex Krieger( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To the attentive user even the simplest map can reveal not only where things are but how people perceive and imagine the spaces they occupy. Mapping Boston is an exemplar of such creative attentiveness - bringing the history of one of America's oldest and most beautiful cities alive through the maps that have depicted it over the centuries." "The book includes both historical maps of the city and maps showing the gradual emergence of the New England region from the imaginations of explorers to a form that we would recognize today. Each map is accompanied by a full description and by a short essay offering an insight into its context. The topics of these vignettes by Anne Mackin include people both familiar and unknown, landmarks, and events that were significant in shaping the landscape or life of the city. A highlight of the book is a series of new maps detailing Boston's growth."--Jacket

How the other half lives; studies among the tenements of New York by Jacob A Riis( Book )

"The belief that every man's experience ought to be worth something to the community from which he drew it, no matter what that experience may be, so long as it was gleaned along the line of some decent, honest work, made me begin this book. With the result before him, the reader can judge for himself now whether or not I was right"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
