In just the few years since the first edition of New York Then and Now, the city has undergone important changes. The most dramatic was the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Since the loss of the twin towers, the island of Manhattan has continued to transform itself, with the renewal of entire neighborhoods, from industrial complexes to residential centers. This newly updated edition highlights the development of the New York’s lavish hotels, palatial department stores, skyscrapers, and condominiums, featuring historic photographs side-by-side with images of the modern cityscape.
