Scenes from the city : filmmaking in New York, 1966-2006 by James Sanders( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To live in New York City is to star in the movie of your own life. To live in New York City for a long time is to begin to doubt who's the lead player in that drama, you or the city itself. Thanks to actual movies, New York City - perhaps the most frequently cast but uncredited extra in cinema history - is a global commodity. You don't really have to live there to feel like you did. In 1966, Mayor John Lindsay launched a radical municipal government initiative with the creation of what is now known as The Mayor's Office of Entertainment and Media. Designed to streamline the process of obtaining permits and working out the logistics of filming on location in NYC, this office opened the flood gates of film and television production and the deluge has been running through the streets ever since. History bears it out - Mayor Linsay's mayoralty ended somewhat ignominiously, but cinephiles owe him a debt of gratitude. This is all made exquisitely clear in the revised and expanded Scenes From the City: Filmmaking in New York, edited by James Sanders. This book is beautiful, a veritiable love letter to New York City as cinema's greatest character. Filled with glorious still photos from the films shot over time in New York, it equally 1.) remind you of just how many great films are set in NYC; 2.) provoke fond memories of the ones you have seen; and 3.) send you running to your preferred movie source to see the ones you haven't."

Active design guidelines : promoting physical activity and health in design( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, architects and urban reformers helped to defeat infectious diseases like cholera and tuberculosis by designing better buildings, streets, neighborhoods, clean water systems, and parks. In the 21st century, designers can again play a crucial role in combating the most rapidly growing public health epidemics of our time: obesity and its impact on related chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. Today, physical inactivity and unhealthy diet are second only to tobacco as the main causes of premature death in the United States. A growing body of research suggests that evidence-based architectural and urban design strategies can increase regular physical activity and healthy eating. The Active Design Guidelines provides architects and urban designers with a manual of strategies for creating healthier buildings, streets, and urban spaces, based on the latest academic research and best practices in the field including urban design strategies for creating neighborhoods, streets, and outdoor spaces that encourage walking, bicycling, and active transportation and recreation, and building design strategies for promoting active living where we work and live and play--for example, through the placement and design of stairs, elevators, and indoor and outdoor spaces
