Part architectural guidebook and part critique, Sky-High documents the pencil-thin, supertall towers that are transforming New York City’s skyline and streets. A new book by Eric P. Nash, author of Manhattan Skyscrapers, illustrated with stunning photography by Bruce Katz, Sky-High captures the city’s penchant for building skyward – from the Woolworth and Chrysler buildings of an early 20th-century race to the top to today’s super luxury aeries of Billionaires’ Row and the World Trade complex in Lower Manhattan. They feature a new crop of “supertall” towers (commonly measured as at least 984’/300m above the sidewalk), including One World Trade Center, Three World Trade Center, 30 Hudson Yards, 35 Hudson Yards, One57, 432 Park Avenue, 53West53, Central Park Tower, and One Vanderbilt.
