The first book to present great landmarked interiors of New York in all their intricate detail, Interior Landmarks is a visual celebration of space that captures the rich heritage of the city. Since 1965, the New York City Landmarks Law has preserved for generations to come a remarkable number of significant spaces in New York City's cultural, social, economic, political, and architectural history. Not only do the exterior facades of these buildings fall within the law's purview, but many of their stunning interiors as well. Newly updated with current information, this book tells the stories of forty-six interior landmarks from the widely celebrated--Radio City Music Hall, the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grand Central Station--to others that are virtually unknown. A catalogue of all 120 interior landmarks, with names of their architects and locations, is also included. Readers will learn about their original construction and style, their exceptional design features, materials, and architectural details, as well as the challenges to preserving them--whether they were unanimously accepted or hotly contested in legal battles--and the preservationists, philanthropists, politicians, and designers who made it possible. The book also includes updated details on the restorations or re-imaginings that took place. Combining strong visuals and thorough research, this valuable reference work will fascinate all readers with an interest in the city's history. This paperback edition is updated with current information, including the 2017 addition of The New York Public Library's historic Rose Main Reading Room to the list of protected landmarks.
