Cityscapes: A History of New York in Images, part of Columbia's History of Urban Life Series, features hundreds of photographs, drawings, advertisements, cartoons, paintings and maps from New York's myriad eras and incarnations. Authors Howard B. Rock (The New York City Artisan), a history professor at Florida International University, and Deborah Dash Moore (At Home in America), a religion professor at Vassar College, trace Gotham's history from its early 17th-century inception as New Amsterdam through the 20th century. Compelling images of sites and events like Wall Street then and now, of tenement houses over the years, of postwar Times Square and an 1812 Fourth of July parade appear on every page. A six-page section is devoted to the construction of the World Trade Center. This well-produced book gives loving and scholarly treatment to the endlessly varied people and places of New York. (Oct.)
