"This updated paperback edition doesn't compromise the quality of
Larry Lederman's original photographs, nor does the addition of a
gorgeous, glossy two-page spread spotlighting the luminous
celestial ceiling mural of the New York Public Library's Rose
Reading Room. A must for lovers of architecture, history, and
design and for anyone--tourist or native--who's ever marveled at
the marble, metal, wood, stone, plaster, and glass adorning the
sanctuaries of New York's notable buildings." --Kirkus Reviews
"Hidden inside New York City's skyscrapers and low-rises are architectural gems carefully protected and preserved by dedicated patrons. A new book, "Interior Landmarks: Treasures of New York," aims to raise awareness of these spaces and encourage appreciation for their art and design by offering a glimpse at 46 spaces recognized by the Landmarks Preservation Commission."
--amNewYork "Lovers of New York history should make space on their shelves for this comprehensive volume." --Luxe Interiors + Design
"Forty-seven tales of interior landmarks in New York are highlighted in this book, capturing a slice of history and indoor space. Gura and Wood write with attention to detail about their picks, from the celebrated Grand Central Terminal and the infamous Tweed Courthouse to the dark corners of the Pierpont Morgan Library..."
--Metropolis "While preservationists have saved many New York City facades from the wrecking ball, interiors have proven harder to protect. Interior Landmarks: Treasures of New York spotlights 47 preserved beauties, like Radio City Music Hall and the fantasy architecture of the Loew's Paradise Theatre in the Bronx."
--Elle Decor "A living, breathing city can neither afford to exist as a museum nor lose its past. And in a city that changes as fast as New York, Interior Landmarks is a reminder that a fight for the right balance is never done and always necessary."
--The Atlantic's "CityLab"
