Description

"...Photographer Richard Berenholtz provides photographs of Manhattan's most stylish and dazzling period: the 1920s and 1930s. Carol Willis, architectural historian, writes in the introduction that the Art Deco style was characterized by geometric ornamentation and 'machine-tooled elegance and sleek lines.' ...Berenholtz captures the skyline in the glimmering orange of sunrise and kaleidoscopic lights of sunset. Many photographs are complemented by quotations from people such as capitalist Ayn Rand: 'The skyline of New York is a monument of splendor that no pyramids or palaces will ever equal or approach.'"
Foreword Magazine

"Now available in a compact and indubitably affordable edition, New York Deco is a collection of Richard Berenholtz's full-color photography showcasing some of New York's most outstanding art deco architecture. Brief text captions and the occaisonal quote enhance this stunning collection that is surely the next best thing to touring New York's grandiosity in person. A treat for art deco fans, and the perfect souvenir for an unforgettable New York vacation, New York Deco is highly recommended."
