Abstract:

"This book begins in Long Island, home to some of the nation's finest estates, and meanders westward, ending in the Niagara Frontier with its famous fort and falls. In between, the photographic tour de force visits every region of the state, documenting in more than 300 full-color photographs each area's distinctive structures. Most sites receive generous multipage spreads." "Historic New York covers more than four centuries, from structures reflecting the state's early history as a Dutch colony to avant-garde post-Modern designs. The oldest site featured is the Kingston Senate House, constructed as a private home in 1676 and briefly the meeting place of the State Senate during the Revolutionary War. The newest site is Bard College Performing Arts Center, designed by Frank Gehry and completed in 2003. The 224-page hardcover book features more than 100 locations, most photographed on several occasions to capture the precise lighting and season to showcase the structure. An organizing principle of the book was to include architecture that is open to the public."--BOOK JACKET.
