The book features more than 200 buildings completed since 2000, with a chapter looking ahead to projects on the horizon.


From the publisher W. W. NORTON:

"A building boom swept New York City and its boroughs in the first decade of the twenty-first century, giving rise to a host of new and architecturally cutting-edge residential, corporate, institutional, academic, and commercial structures designed by starchitects and up-and-comers alike. Perfectly timed for touring the city's new skyline, this guidebook visits and maps them all out, literally.

A full-color visual guide, this essential walking companion showcases 200 of the most notable public buildings and spaces that have risen in New York City's five boroughs since the new millennium. In addition, "New York City 2020" offers a peek at what's planned for the coming decade.

Arranged by neighborhood, the guide allows for easy, self-guided tours, with more than 350 vibrant photos, 22 maps, subway and bus directions, and compelling anecdotes about each building's history, design, or construction."
