The Dakota : a History of the World's Best-Known Apartment Building by Andrew Alpern( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Dakota is arguably the best-known residential address in the world, home to dozens of New York City's most famous artists, performers, and successful executives. The rare sale of an apartment there, usually at jaw-dropping prices, is newsworthy, as is the financial and architectural health of the building itself, a landmark in every sense of the word. The first true luxury apartment house built in New York City, more than 130 years ago, the Dakota is still the gold standard against which all other apartment buildings are weighed. Historian Andrew Alpern tells the fascinating story of how the Dakota came to be, how Singer sewing magnate Edward Clarke dared to build an apartment building luxurious enough to coax the city's wealthy from their mansions downtown for ultra-modern living on what was then the swamplands of the Upper West Side. Redrawn plans of the entire building, published here for the first time, show how Clarke created apartments glamorous enough that they made living under a shared roof as acceptable in Manhattan as it already was in Europe's grand capitals, forever revolutionizing apartment life in New York City."--Publisher's description
Building New York : the rise and rise of the greatest city on Earth by Bruce Marshall( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The evolution of New York's built environment is chronicled in this history of both its architectural masterpieces and its brilliantly engineered infrastructure. With the immediacy only photography can capture we witness New York emerging in the years following the Civil War, spreading uptown, enfolding Central Park, bridging the rivers, tunneling the bedrock, scraping the sky." "As materials change from brick and brownstone to steel and later plate glass - a development supported, in part, by newly harnessed electricity and elevators - we can relive such moments as muddy Longacre Square's rebirth as neon-lit Times Square in the wake of the uptown relocation of the theaters and the city's "newspaper of record." Building New York traces the transformation of Fifth Avenue into a "millionaires' row" and the eastern edge of the Park into a museum enclave. It catalogues not merely the skyscrapers and public buildings but the department stores, stations and hotels, churches and airports, expressways and housing projects." "Always the most self-conscious of cities, New York came of age with the camera. This incredible hoard of pictures has been sourced from the 70 million images owned or represented by Getty Images with many originating from Time & Life Pictures and the Museum of the City of New York. These are the very pictures that helped create New York's larger-than-life image."--Jacket
