New York

This state— home to the iconic Big Apple— has a lot more to it than bright lights and fast-paced living. This collection of original hand-colored antique architectural plans and prints, gelatines, lithographs, and photogravures exudes character, charm and rich history through its houses, churches, and buildings. One can see the range of building activity taking place in the New York by famous Eastern architects such as McKim, Mead and White. Whether it's Tarrytown (the city that inspired Washington Irving's Sleepy Hollow), Tuxedo Park, or the famous Central Park, this collection has buildings in a plethora of historic places.
