New York Rising: An Illustrated History from the Durst Collection is a new book from architectural historian Thoma Mellins and author Kate Ascher that takes a deep dive into Manhattan's real estate development history, and the incredible buildings which were built, along with some amazing ones that weren't.
New York Rising is an illustrated history of real estate development in Manhattan, a story of speculation and innovation--of the big ideas, big personalities, and big risks that collectively shaped a city like no other. From the first European settlement in the seventeenth century through the skyscrapers and large-scale urban planning schemes of the late twentieth century, this book presents a broad historical survey, illustrated with images drawn largely from the rich archival resources of the Durst Collection at Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University.
