Product Overview

This outstanding volume represents a stirring text-and-picture tribute to more than 75 New York City bridges. From Peter Stuyvesant's New Amsterdam era to Robert Moses' modern-day achievements, The Bridges of New York groups the bridges by geography and economics (the two prime considerations facing bridge-builders) and explains the design principles of cantilever, swing, bascule, and many other bridge types. The highly readable text is enhanced with more than 150 black-and-white illustrations, from archival engravings to contemporary photographs, of such splendid spans as the Brooklyn Bridge, Throgs Neck, Verrazano Narrows, Whitestone, George Washington, Manhattan, and many other bridges. In addition to its appeal to engineering and architecture buffs, this pictorial treasury will appeal to New Yorkers, visitors, and anyone who has ever marveled at the extraordinary scale and grandeur of New York's bridges.
