Hudson Valley Ruins: Forgotten Landmarks of an American Landscape
Thomas Rinaldi; Robert J. Yasinsac

University Press of New England, 2006. As new in dust jacket. Hardcover. 336 pp. with index, bibliography. Illustrated with color plates and black and white photos. A valuable work that focuses on historic sites in New York's Hudson Valley, concentrating not on the usual, best known and best preserved places but rather on the dozens of other historic sites that haven't fared so well (even though some are on the National Register). In addition to the great river estates, the book profiles sites more meaningful to everyday life in the Valley--churches,, hotels, commercial and civic buildings, mills, train stations, etc. Included are works by such important American architectural figures as Cavert Vaux and Alexander Jackson Davis. As New Hardcover 9781584655985 (Item ID: E19583)
