Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Book News
Stravitz, a professional photographer in New York, has published a selection from a large archive he discovered of high quality photos of architecture, street scenes, and some vistas taken in New York City between 1920-1945. The pristine views, which were taken with an 8x10 view camera, capture the buildings of New York with exquisite clarity and detail. The photos are presented in full-page, double-page, and fold-out-page plates, impressive in this oversized (9.75x12") format. Notes about the buildings are provided by Christopher Gray.
