New York Deco profiles the architecture of the city during its most stylish and dazzling decades: the 1920s and 30s. During this period, art deco, with its emphasis on machine-tooled elegance and sleek lines, replaced the beaux arts style that preceded it. New York City landmarks were born of this age—the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Waldorf Astoria—as well as dozens of lesser known office buildings and apartment houses. Together, they make the skyline of the Big Apple what it is today. Richard Berenholtz’s stunning photographs of the finest examples of NYC’s art deco architecture are accompanied by text from writers, artists, and personalities of the era, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ogden Nash, and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others. A perfect gift for the New Yorker and tourist alike, this gem of a book is a window into one of the city’s most divine periods.
