This celebration of the buildings and views of New York City, with 450 illustrations, was originally published in 1912. It was compiled from previously published travel books by editor and publisher Moses King, who died in 1909. From such familiar sights as The Plaza Hotel, Grand Central Terminal, and the Fuller building, aka the Flat Iron building, to such long-gone landmarks as the original Madison Square Garden, the Singer Building (demolished in 1968, at 47-stories it was the tallest building ever to be razed up to that time), and The New York World Building, aka The Pulitzer building after the newspaper's owner Joseph Pulitzer (demolished in 1955), this is a fascinating look at New York City 100 years ago. Here's Times Square in simpler times, well-known bridges crossing the East River (but none yet built over the Hudson) and churches, hotels, and parks that still make New York one of the worlds' greatest cities.
