Manhattan manners : architecture and style, 1850-1900

"Manhattan Manners: Architecture and Style, 1850-1900 mines a wealth of vintage photographs, maps, and historic periodicals to recreate the era during which the characteristics that distinguish Manhattan as a city to this day-innovation, eclecticism, peripatetic fashion, and a dizzying pace of commercial and real estate development-were formed. A depiction and an assessment of New York City in the second half of the Nineteenth Century, Manhattan Manners is a tour of a quintessentially urban American place from its great public parks, squares, monuments, and fashionable boulevards to its ever-changing neighborhoods of private town houses, brownstones, luxury apartments, and tenement buildings."--Publisher's description
