For generations, New Yorkers have joked about ´´The City´s” interminable tearing down and building up. The city that the whole world watches seems to be endlessly remaking itself. When the locals and the rest of the world say ´´New York”, they mean Manhattan, a crowded island of commercial districts and residential neighborhoods, skyscrapers and tenements, fabulously rich and abjectly poor cheek by jowl. Of course, it was not always so; New York´s metamorphosis from compact port to modern metropolis occurred during the mid-19th century. Empire City tells the story of the dreams that inspired the changes in the landscape and the problems that eluded solution. Author David Scobey paints a remarkable panorama of New York´s uneven development, a city-building process careening between obsessive calculation and speculative excess. Envisioning a new kind of national civilization, ´´bourgeois urbanists” attempted to make New York the nation´s pre-eminent city. Ultimately, they created a mosaic of grand improvements, dynamic change, and environmental disorder. Empire City sets the stories of the city´s most celebrated landmarks - Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, the downtown commercial center within the context of this new ideal of landscape design and a politics of planned city building. Perhaps such an ambitious project for guiding growth, overcoming spatial problems, and uplifting the public was bound to fail; still, it grips the imagination. 1. Language: English.

Of all the great cities in the world, few personify their country like New York City. As America´s largest city and best known immigration gateway into the country, NYC represents the beauty, diversity and sheer strength of the United States, a global financial center that has enticed people chasing the ´´American Dream´´ for centuries. America´s prototypical metropolis was once a serene landscape in which Native American tribes farmed and fished, but when European settlers arrived its location on the Eastern seaboard sparked a rapid transformation. Given its history of rapid change, it is ironic that the city´s inhabitants often complain about the city´s changing and yearn for things to stay the same. The website EV Grieve, whose name plays on the idea that the East Village ´´grieves´´ for the history and character the neighborhood loses every day to market forces and gentrification, regularly features a photo of some site, usually of little interest: an abandoned store, a small bodega, a vacant lot. The caption says, simply, that this is what the site looked like on a given day. The editors of the website are determined to document everything and anything for future generations. That is hardly a modern phenomenon. New Yorkers have always grieved over the city´s continuous upheavals and ever-increasing size and complexity. By the 1820s, Wall Street had lost whatever charm it might have had; former residents complained that two-story houses had given way to intimidating five-story office buildings. The New York Commercial Advertiser noted in 1825 that ´´Greenwich is no longer a country village,´´ but rather an up-and-coming neighborhood. Today, it´s hard to find a history of New York City that doesn’t refer to Henry James´s famous 1908 story The Jolly Corner, in which a man returns to New York after decades abroad only to be horrified by an unfamiliar hellscape of commercial growth. He finds his once-jolly childhood home nearly buried ´´among the drea... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/089984/bk_acx0_089984_sample.mp3.
