Garden Cemeteries of New England
In 1831 a new entity appeared on the American landscape: the garden cemetery.

Historian Trudy Irene Scee takes readers on a historical tour of eighteen of the Northeast's garden cemeteries, exploring the landscape architecture, the stunning beauty, and delving into the rich history of both the sites and of those who are buried there.

Which city is better: L.A. or New York? Inspired by this oft-posed question, the bi-coastal Sammy Perlmutter decided to pin his two hometowns side by side and answer this question once and for all. It turns out, the cities' similarities are what make it impossible to choose. The New Yorker's Guide to LA, The Angeleno's Guide to NYC - colourful and comprehensive - is as much a love letter to two cities as it is a practical travel guide. By highlighting the parallels between the two cities, it will help readers get up to speed in New York City settle into the groove of Los Angeles. Featuring a mirrored design, this book shows which neighbourhoods correspond in each city, which pizza places and taco stands can't be missed and how to seamlessly switch from navigating the MTA to driving on the 405. Covering everything you need to know to tackle either or both cities - from art, culture, shopping, eating, day trips and first date spots to neighbourhood history lessons and area code reputations - it highlights the similarities while breaking down the nuanced differences in each city. Though it's tongue-in-cheek and fun to read, the book will be illustrated with maps, diagrams and portraits and will be a practical, must-have guide for tourist and native alike.

Brooklyn: The Once and Future City
An unprecedented history of Brooklyn, told through its places, buildings, and the people who made them, from the early seventeenth century to today America's most storied urban underdog, Brooklyn has become an internationally recognized brand in recent decades-celebrated and scorned as one of the hippest destinations in the world. In Brooklyn: The Once and Future City, Thomas J. Campanella unearths long-lost threads of the urban past, telling the rich history of the rise, fall, and reinvention of one of the world's most resurgent cities. Spanning centuries and neighborhoods, Brooklyn-born Campanella recounts the creation of places familiar and long forgotten, both built and never realized, bringing to life the individuals whose dreams, visions, rackets, and schemes forged the city we know today. He takes us through Brooklyn's history as homeland of the Leni Lenape and its transformation by Dutch colonists into a dense slaveholding region. We learn about English emigre Deborah Moody, whose town of Gravesend was the first founded by a woman in America. We see how wanderlusting Yale dropout Frederick Law Olmsted used Prospect Park to anchor an open space system that was to reach back to Manhattan. And we witness Brooklyn's emergence as a playland of racetracks and amusement parks celebrated around the world. Campanella also describes Brooklyn's outsized failures, from Samuel Friede's bid to erect the world's tallest building to the long struggle to make Jamaica Bay the world's largest deepwater seaport, and the star-crossed urban renewal, public housing, and highway projects that battered the borough in the postwar era. Campanella reveals how this immigrant Promised Land drew millions, fell victim to its own social anxieties, and yet proved resilient enough to reawaken as a multicultural powerhouse and global symbol of urban vitality.

Out From Midtown: A Historical Walking Guide to New York City
Step off the beaten path of Fifth Avenue and into the rich cultural history of New York City's five boroughs. Beyond the crowds and tourist traps of dazzling Midtown Manhattan are layers of history waiting to be discovered. Even for locals, who each day pass the shadows of New York's immigrant beginnings, the city holds a secret history to be revealed-if only you know what to look for. Out From Midtown transforms the city from a bustling metropolis to a virtual archaeological dig. Simple walking directions and transit tips guide the traveler through the most distinct and diverse points in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. Learn to see New York three-dimensionally through the eyes of history, where architecture, grave sites, and street corners hold the clues to a fascinating past and the wonders of an adventurous present. For five decades, historian Bob Swacker has led tours through the neighborhoods of New York City. His tours combine decades of historical research in libraries, cemeteries, and historical societies; interviews with borough residents; and many miles traveled on foot in the field. He has taught at Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn since 1970 and for many years he has taught courses on New York City at Saint Ann's and at New York University. Dr. Swacker is the author of New York City History and co-author, with Leslie Jenkins, of Irish New York . He lives in Stuyvesant Town.
