New York's Golden Age of Bridges

Paintings by Antonio Masi and Essays by Joan Marans Dim

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Masi's paintings are reproduced in lavish color, making a great coffee table book for New Yorkers, ex-New Yorkers, and wishes-they-were-New Yorkers.
  • Dim's essays are heartfelt reflections that exude a love for New York and wonder at the city's architectural marvels. Each Chapter offers a microhistory of the bridge, incorporating art, politics, city planning and infrastructure.
  • Both the paintings and the essays reflect highly personal connections with the bridges: Masi in particular is inspired by his own grandfather's work on the Queensboro.
  • Masi and Dim are both highly committed to marketing the book, and have arranged tours, gallery showings, and talks around the country.
