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 $425,000 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
This fifth edition of a catalog of New York City's architectural and historical landmarks adds 183 new landmarks and 39 new historic districts, with information current through June 2011. B&w photos of landmarks on every page are accompanied by neighborhood maps. A 47-page opening essay by author Diamonstein-Spielvogel (Historic Landmarks Preservation Center; New York State Council on the Arts) chronicles the work of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission from its creation in 1965 to the present. The 1,276 individual landmarks and 102 historic districts described in the book have all been deemed landmarks by the Commission. Entries are arranged chronologically, from colonial farmhouses to 20th-century structures, within sections on individual landmarks; lampposts, bracket lights, and sidewalk clocks; and historic districts. Entries give details on architectural features, original and later purposes of the building, and original and later occupants. Each entry includes a neighborhood map and a fact box on construction and restoration dates, architect, street address, and date of designation as a landmark.
