"For the very rich, there were houses such as private citizens in America had never before built for themselves; for the growing middle class, comfortable apartments and suburban houses set new standards for the world; and for the poor, there were tenements but also model dwellings that promised a better future."--BOOK JACKET. "New York 1880 definitively presents the buildings and master plans that transformed New York from a harbor town into a world-class metropolis. The book is generously illustrated with over 1,200 archival photographs that show the city as it was; through a broad range of primary sources - critics and writers, architects, planners, and government officials - New York City tells its own complex story."--Jacket

Robert A.M. Stern : 15 Central Park West and the history of the New York apartment house by Tom Piper( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even during the Great Recession of 2008, one new apartment house in New York City continued to set the bar for real-estate prices: 15 Central Park West. Designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects, the lavish, limestone-clad structure from 61st to 62nd streets is arguably one of the most luxurious residential buildings to rise in the city in decades. Stern deliberately evokes the grand era of New York apartments designed in the 1920s and 1930s, especially the intricately planned architecture of Rosario Candela. Stern, Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, with his own practice in New York, has written a series of books on the history of New York City architecture, in which the high-rise apartment house plays a prominent part. In this film shot in High-Definition, Stern explains why apartment buildings of past decades appealed to so many affluent city dwellers and the lessons learned by examining the houses' design and construction. Amenities of 15 Central Park West, such as 14-foot-high ceilings, a private dining room for the inhabitants, along with a library and other communal spaces represent a return to features of New York City's earliest apartment buildings dating to the 19th century. Rounding out this exploration of the New York City apartment house are brief glimpses of certain modern residential towers in lower Manhattan designed by today's vanguard architects. In addition, Elizabeth Hawes, author of New York, New York: how the apartment house transformed the life of the city (1869-1930) provides informative socio-cultural observations about this form of high-rise living

In the United States the firm's educational, cultural, commercial, religious, and residential work continues to broaden its exploration of traditional and contemporary architectural expression. This volume presents the firm's continued influence on campuses across the United States, reflecting the position that education holds in its ethic, with new additions to Drexel University in Philadelphia, Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and University of Colorado Boulder. The office also remains key to the ongoing development of its home in New York City, with new residential towers on the High Line and in Greenwich Village."--
