Pairing classic archive photos with their modern viewpoint, New York Then and Now shows the dramatic changes that have transformed the city that never sleeps.
Photographed by one of the city's leading architectural photographers and authored by the doyenne of popular New York histories, Marcia Reiss, this book shows the ever changing nature of the city's streetscapes.
All the familiar New York landmarks are included, starting with Governors Island and Liberty Island with Liberty Enlightening the World, then moving inland from Castle Clinton and Battery Park through Manhattan to Central Park and beyond. There are the sites that have hardly changed in the last century (Ellis Island, US Custom House, Wall Street, Central Park), there are those that have disappeared entirely (Pennsylvania Station, Waldorf Astoria, the Singer Building), and there are those that never stop changing from week to week (Times Square).
This latest version for 2019 includes more vintage color, along with new photography to bring the title up to date.
