Amidst the many worthy books under way or published on New York architecture, design, and style, most focus on one style, one designer, or one residential category. New York Living: Re-Inventing Home will instead celebrate or delight in a broad array of contemporary residences that have been renovated and re-invented but which emerge from traditional apartment or building types with historic roots throughout New York’s five boroughs. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the present state of design creativity in all of New York City: under-known neighborhoods, previously ignored typologies, ingenious use of space, and how to make a home within the city’s entirely envied borders.What does a home look like in twenty-first century New York? New Yorkers once had fixed ideas as to what was what—you had the Park Avenue mansion, the 5th Avenue Penthouse, the SoHo loft; the Lower East Side tenement, the Bohemian Village ruin—but now so much more is possible. This book celebrates the vast possibilities open to today’s urbanite, featuring more than 25 contemporary apartments and town houses that exemplify this idea.
