Inhaltsangabe: New York City is home to more skyscrapers than any other city in the world. Iconic in stature, they tell the story of the city's commercial and architectural history. The buildings pictured here stretch from the sidewalks to the sky, from the East River to the Hudson, from Battery Park to the far reaches of Central Park. Along with structures that are familiar to readers such as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler and Woolworth buildings, there are other less recognizable but nonetheless important structures that have become a part of New Yorkers'daily lives. Each chapter focuses on an area of Manhattan, and opens with numbered maps showing the exact locations of the featured buildings. In a series of two to four page spreads, fullpage photographs of the skyscrapers are accompanied by additional illustrations, historical insights, architectural details, and interesting facts about their construction and evolution. An essay on the collective history of the city's skyscrapers rounds out this compilation of nearly 85 examples of New York City's most magnificent feature-its far-reaching, ever changing skyline.

In order to be able to better situate individual buildings in their historical context, the book begins with a brief history of skyscrapers. In the last 12 decades, there have been so many different developments and styles that a separate introduction would be needed to acknowledge all of them. Inevitably, the consequences of the devastating terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center (page 54), on September 11, 2001, must also be considered in terms of the history of high-rise construction in New York. This unparalleled act of violence not only dramatically altered the city's skyline but also influenced New Yorkers' sense of security, particularly of those involved in the construction of skyscrapers.
