New York Rises

New York Rising is an illustrated history of real estate development in Manhattan, a story of speculation and innovation—of the big ideas, big personalities, and big risks that collectively shaped a city like no other.

From the first European settlement in the seventeenth century through the skyscrapers and large-scale urban planning schemes of the late twentieth century, this book presents a broad historical survey, illustrated with images drawn largely from the rich archival resources of the Durst Collection at Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University.
