Endorsements & Reviews

“The MAS’s expertise in conducting tours is highly evident; the book provides extraordinarily precise directions on where to walk, where to look up and when to turn around. The text, by architectural tour guide Francis Morrone and architectural historian Matthew A. Postal, is rich without being overly dense, and striking high-resolution photography by Edward A. Toran makes the volume useful to armchair travelers as well.” — Modernism

“[I]f you can't fit a tour into your schedule while you're in town, the Municipal Art Society has just come out with a guide that allows you to do it yourself.” — Associated Press

“References to other buildings are thoughtfully keyed, aware of the manner in which a book allows for the walking tour to devolve into something more personal, less scripted….It furthers [the MAS] mission of celebrating the city’s many layers and appreciating them firsthand.” — John Hill, Archidose.org

“This is an outstanding book, hard to top in its knowledge and structure that practically calls you to walk the city's streets and drink in its history and beauty.” — Examiner.com

“The book is a suitable gift for out-of-town visitors or city residents, and it could serve as the basis for a group excursion, if you’re looking for a cheaper, D.I.Y. approach to teambuilding.” — BizBash
