Description: 

Join Brooklyn Public Library for a talk with one of the authors of the classic book, Bricks & Brownstone: The New York Row House, in honor of the new re-issue published by Rizzoli.

First published in 1972, Bricks & Brownstone is the first and still the only volume to examine in depth the changing form and varied architectural styles of the much-loved New York City row house, or brownstone. That edition helped pave the way for a brownstone revival that has transformed New York's historic neighborhoods over the past half-century. Rizzoli published a revised and expanded edition of the book in 2003, to much fanfare. This edition revisits the classic comprehensively, with an updated text and additional chapters, and an abundance of specially commissioned color photography, including many photographs of houses in the Prospect Heights Historic District. It offers to an eager audience the long-awaited re-issue of the landmark volume in a brilliant new form.

Be sure to RSVP soon to reserve your place. You can also pre-order a copy of Bricks and Brownstone at a special discount through Greenlight Books and have it signed by the author following the talk!
