A comprehensive guide to the architectural history of Jamestown, New York. New York’s small cities are little-known treasure troves of American history. Among them, Jamestown stands out with a memorable and engaging cityscape highlighted by steep hills, brick streets, a remarkably intact city center, and numerous buildings of historical and architectural interest. Peter A. Lombardi’s Jamestown, New York chronicles the development of this Southern Tier city’s built environment over two-hundred years—from a frontier outpost, to a leading maker of furniture and textiles, to a reenergized postindustrial city. Part one provides a short history of Jamestown, emphasizing the economic and social forces that have influenced the city’s architecture and development patterns. Part two includes detailed entries on more than one hundred buildings and sites, with maps to facilitate walking and driving tours. This comprehensive guide to New York’s Pearl City illuminates the stories behind the buildings, connecting Jamestown’s past and present to the evolution of urban America. “Jamestown, New York tells the story of Jamestown, a typical northeastern American city, through the architectural landscape that exists today. Peter gives the reader the tools to interpret clues hidden in plain sight about Jamestown’s growth, decline, and revitalization. He also ties national trends and issues into the Jamestown story. The book is easy to read, informative, and immediately applicable for novices and experts alike.” — Joni Blackman, Director, Fenton History Center

Throughout the 20th century we have seen every form of landscape, nude, and other genre captured in gelatin silver and platinum prints by scores of brilliant artists. But to produce innovative black-and-white images in the 21st century that reveal something fresh and exciting is indeed very difficult. Moreover, to find an artist who is capturing photographs of New York City, arguably the most photographed and documented city in the world, is even a greater challenge. Croppi's work stands out for its stark form and composition, juxtaposing solitary figures in some of the busiest and most chaotic areas of the city. Croppi himself seems to perceive the weakness of the objective world and the interior resonance that his dark tones and emptiness are capable of obtaining. The color black, so very dominant in this series, far from being a mere stylistic element, acts as a dramatic process. An estrangement is carried out by an obstinate focusing on all the particulars of the image, with the conviction, emphasized by the artist himself, that in photography the metaphysical dimension is strengthened by an extremely realistic or even a hyper-realistic language. Faithful as always to an aesthetic which refuses traditional formalism, Croppi reaffirms this ability to grasp multiple phenomena constructed out of moments of reference to painting and literature, with a sense of applied temporality through superimposition and a collision of contrasting moments. Our concerns of the human condition are microcosms in these photographs: ghosts with elusive faces, petrified passers-by, swallowed up by shadows in a space in which they are both victims and strangers at the same time.

The splendor of New York’s most famous green space comes alive in this essential companion for nature lovers and travelers to New York. In more than 900 color images, a leading nature writer and a long-time Central Park naturalist detail the park’s tree species and their place in the park’s iconic landscapes. They show how to identify trees by their needles and leaves as well as by their flowers, fruits, and bark. Historical maps illustrate Manhattan’s changing vegetation and depict the various stages of the park’s construction. Beautiful photographs of the park’s most outstanding trees and landscapes accompanied by historical vignettes conjure the people and events that brought the trees to the park and helped create this urban oasis. More than a botanical guide, this book cultivates an appreciation of the park as both a natural triumph and an embodiment of the city’s varied spirit.
