New-York Historical Society
Upper West Side
The Landmarks of New York is an exhibition which explores the history of New York as revealed by its historical structures. The exhibition's ninety photographs of New York landmarks, including thirty newly donated by former New York City Landmarks Commissioner Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, are critical documents that chronicle the city's past from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries. As the city grew, single family houses were replaced by apartment buildings and then skyscrapers; agriculture replaced manufacturing, which was supplanted by commerce and the movement of goods and services. All of these structures tell the story of New York's journey from a small colonized village to a world class city.
