"Manhattan Classic: New York's Finest Prewar Apartments by Geoffrey Lynch (Princeton Architectural Press) is a treasure trove of information and gorgeous images of apartments built from the 1880s through the 1930s.... It is also a wealth of current decorating ideas for anyone who lives in a vintage apartment or for someone who just wished they did and wants to pull off the look." - Cleveland Plain DealerVom Verlag:
The Dakota. The Apthorp. The San Remo. The names of these legendary New York apartment buildings evoke images of marble-lined lobbies, uniformed doormen and sunlit penthouses with sweeping Central Park views. Built from the 1880s through 1930s, classic pre-war apartments were designed to lure townhouse dwellers reluctant to share a roof with other families. Billed as private mansions in the sky, they promised a charmed Manhattan lifestyle of elegance and luxury. Manhattan Classic takes readers on a lavishly illustrated guided tour of eighty-five of the most coveted buildings in New York. Author Geoffrey Lynch provides capsule histories-equal parts architectural and social history- of the most celebrated examples, with anecdotes about well-known residents and essential information about notable features. This gorgeous coffee table book is an indispensible resource for apartment hunters, real estate and design professionals and anyone fascinated by the grace and glamour of pre-war style.
