Product Description

Review

"The recognition of Queens neighborhoods, incidentally, is one of the notable changes in the fourth edition of the Guide to New York City Landmarks….the new edition treats Queens as it should, just like the rest of the city. Graphically, this is a small change, but it is these and other enhancements to this frequently updated guide that make it worthwhile." ( The Architect′s Newspaper , June 3, 2009)

NY Landmarks 14 Jan 2009
By Gerald F. Hofschneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An excellent guide to the many landmarked buildings and city districts deemed valuable to NYC by it's own Landmark Commission.
On my next visit to the City,I'll be carrying this book around with me as I seek out special buildings in the vast architectural landscape of New York City.

Excellent guide; the best out there. 16 July 2010
By NYC Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really great guide that includes descriptions of individual buildings and historic districts.
My only quibbles are that it doesn't have suggested walks and, on a few maps, "notable structures" are designated with the letters while individual landmarks are designated with numbers. As a result you have to go back and forth between different lists for adjacent buildings.
Much more comprehensive than the MASNYC "10 Architectural Walks in Manhattan."
