Coney Island’s Dreamland—destroyed by fire in 1911, Metropolitan Opera House—demolished in 1967, Moondance Diner—moved to Wyoming in 2007. A celebration of the cherished parts of New York that are no longer.
I loved this book more than I have words to describe. I am a huge history buff and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the pictures and this little history bits on each of the buildings. I also loved how the book was broken up into eras and not just a random order. It really shows how much the author cared for her subject. I really loved seeing the architecture of the old buildings. Possibly my favorite one was the Elephant hotel on Coney Island. I would have loved to stayed in that one.
I would definitely suggest this book to anyone who loves photography of old buildings, history or New York. I cannot wait to read more from this series.
