Daley, Robert  
The World Beneath the City
 Picture
Publisher: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1959 Philadelphia, PA.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Today New York is the greatest living, breathing organism in the world. Once it was a collection of wigwams. It could not grow from one to the other until the roots which it pushed down into earth and rock were strong enough. Thus, the story of those roots, and the men who put them there, is the story of the city itself. It is a curious saga of inventors and charlatans, visionaries and crooks--of Alfred Eli Beach, who invented and built an extraordinary pneumatic subway twenty-one feet under Broadway in 1870; of Borough President Connolly, the Queens sewer ring and a mission eight million dollars that made headlines during the roaring Twenties; of Aaron Burr, whose dream of empire was bound up with water pipes, wooden ones, beneath the streets of New York. It is the story also of the smugglers' tunnel under Brooklyn, bums living in luxury below Park Avenue, and alligators hunted through the sewers of Manhattan. There is 'Smelly' Kelly, the subway sniffer, whose job for over thirty years has been following his nose along subway tracks; and there is Teddy May, who worked more than half a century in the sewers and who loved them so much that he used to take long walks in them on Sunday afternoons--or so his friends said and believed. Each time the water from a new aqueduct, or a new subway, joined the maze under New York there was a mad, completely joyous civic celebration, most of them so splendid you would have thought a war had ended. That is part of the story too, because it is a kind of delight which does not exist in this sophisticated Atomic Age. Robert Daley has unearthed a bonanza of anecdotes, personalities and history, and has put them together in a way to make The World Beneath the City one of the most entertaining books you'll come across. Having read it, you'll never again take for granted the weird world beneath New York City." Illustrated with 8 pages of photographs. 223 pages. This title is not commonly found! Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; shelfwear.

Nightmares In The Sky Gargoyles and Grotesques

Publisher: N.Y., Viking Studio, 1988.
128 p. 100 duotone and 24 color photos, 28.5 x 26 cm. This is a handsome record of the ornamentation of classical-style building in New York. Despite the affectation of the name f-stop(F. Scott's Kodiak Bear nephew?) is a pretty good photographer; despite the title, this is an interesting record of architectural ornamentation; despite the selection of a horror novelist to write it, the text is useful. This strikes me as a book that could have succeeded straight, but was packaged by Viking editors for the stupid. Stock# 30,149. Vg, remainer mark/ dj vg.
