Imagining New York City

Literature, Urbanism, and the Visual Arts, 1890-1940

Christoph Lindner

  • Presents an impressive interdisciplinary argument about how New York from 1890 to 1940 related to and informed popular understandings of urban spaces.
  • Draws on examples and archival material from across the fields of literature, architecture, visual art, cinema, and urban planning and design.
  • Makes connections between modern New York and both the city's colonial/pre-modern roots and its global future.
