So many wonderful new books were released last fall, and I am still sifting through to share my favorites… One that I found particularly intriguing is Life at the Top: New York’s Most Exceptional Apartment Buildings from Vendome Press. This new book offers a historic overview of Manhattan’s most splendid apartment buildings, chronicling the dramatic shifts in lifestyle and design over the last 130 years from Beaux-Arts mansions to high-rise glass condominiums. Life at the Top explores 15 prestigious apartment houses through vintage and current photography of exterior and interior architectural details, as well as facts and photographs of the chic New Yorkers who live or have lived in these elegant abodes. With interiors designed by some of the most highly regarded designers of our time and a wealth of historical information, this book offers a delightful taste of life at the top.
