Pre-Order My NYC Guide

A couple hours ago I noticed that my forthcoming Guide to Contemporary New York City Architecture (W. W. Norton, January 2012) is on the publisher's web page and on Amazon's web sites. Last month I looked at color proofs, and now seeing it in these venues, the reality of the book is starting to sink in a bit. Having a copy in one's hands is still about six months off, but the book can be pre-ordered at Amazon and other online retailers now; see the bottom of this post for links.  Most are priced rather nicely.


Here's the description from the book's page at W. W. Norton:
The essential walking companion to more than two hundred cutting-edge buildings constructed since the new millennium.
Lively architectural production has flourished in New York City and its boroughs since 2000. A host of residential, corporate, institutional, academic, and commercial structures have risen up, many designed by "starchitects." Perfectly timed for tours of the city's new skyline, this guidebook maps them all out, literally.

  1. Congrats! Going to order my very own copy and rediscover this ever-evolving city.

  2. Congratulations! I am going to pre-order one as well, let's see if I can on the French Amazon site, since I'm in France.

    Also just to say that your cover touches me deeply, since I had Raimund Abraham as a professor at Cooper Union in my first year - quite a particular character, pretty far of the usual "starchitect" I must admit.

  3. Congrats!
    I love NYC!
    I went there 10 years ago for the first time and I fell in love with it.
    I´m planning another trip to reconnect with the city and meet the high line.
    Maybe I can use your book as a guide :)

  4. Wow it so cooolllll!!!!
