Description

Without its vast infrastructure, New York would not have been able to forge five boroughs into one city, welcome millions of newcomers, and become the financial and cultural capital of the world. Covering the period from 1909-2009, To Build New York is an informative, vivid and engaging account of the “who, what, when, where, how, and why” of New York’s infrastructure, pulled together with photos and stories of the people who did all the work. This superb urban chronicle offers readers a revealing inside look at the building of New York’s roads and highways, bridges and tunnels, subways and rail lines, airports and aqueducts, skyscrapers, electric power grid, sewage treatment plants, and other facilities.
