New York Deco profiles the architecture of the city during its most stylish and dazzling decades: the 1920s and early 1930s. New York City landmarks were born in this age – the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Waldorf-Astoria – as well as dozens of lesser-known office buildings and apartment houses. Together, they make the skyline of New York what it is today.

Richard Berenholtz’s stunning photographs of the finest examples of New York City’s art deco architecture are accompanied by text from writers, artists, and personalities of the era, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ogden Nash, and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others.

Art Deco Chandelier - Hammersmith Apollo
Designed by Robert Cromie and opened as the Gaumont Palace cinema in 1932, this has been one of London’s main venues for live music since the early 1960s. The Beatles, Bob Marley, Bruce Sprinsteen and David Bowie all played there when it was called the Hammersmith Odeon.

The decor is largely as it was when it opened. Although this looks like a chandelier, it is in fact mounted on the side wall of the theatre
