About This Book

From the Battery to the Bronx, this dynamic gift book showcases New York’s architectural landmarks in three-dimensional die-cut models ready to press out. This charming tour through the architectural marvels of the Big Apple is a wonderfully entertaining gift. Paper New York showcases three-dimensional replications of the city’s legendary and iconic locations and celebrates the talent and imagination of the architects, engineers, and builders of the world’s most famous skyline. Innovative, informative, and thoroughly charming, Paper New York features twenty ready-to-construct die-cut models, from the Manhattan skyline to individual models of iconic feats of architecture and engineering, such as the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum, Daniel Burnham’s Flatiron Building, the Chrysler Building (voted America’s favorite skyscraper), the United Nations, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum of American Art, Cass Gilbert’s Woolworth Building—and two icons very special to New York City, an MTA subway car and a hotdog cart! This is the perfect gift for any architectural enthusiast, visitor in need of a unique souvenir, or anyone who has fallen under the city’s spell.
