5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Building, Great Story 25 septembre 2001
Par Clifford Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is an excellent work that details the history of the Empire State Building. I was a bit surprised to find how much the author managed to pack into my paperback. Everything from skyscraper height restrictions to land leases and modern restructuring of ownership for tax purposes (and all the "interesting" stuff in between). If you buy this book and you're not from New York, do yourself a favor and get a map of the area. So you can follow along in the early chapters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good overview of the building's past and present 27 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Fairly well written book, that can be roughly divided into three parts. The author knows and loves NY, and he loves its' history and buildings and other landmarks.
The first third includes a well-researched overview of the advent of skyscrapers in general, with emphasis on New York buildings. The economic factors at work and the arcana of NYC zoning laws are explained, but not tediously so. The author sets the stage well, and shows us his characters and what motivates them.
The second third describes the mechanics of constructing the building. Plenty of detail, good explanations.
The last third covers the history of the building from its' opening down to the present-day.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best book on the Empire State! 18 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is the best book I've read on the building. It is very informative, and has many good pictures. There have been some quite well written books on the Empire State Building, but no other comes as close as John Tauranac's The Empire State Building, The making of a landmark.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Scholarly History of the World's Greatest Skyscraper 11 août 2000
Par M. L. Loudermilk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is not a coffee table book of glossy color photographs of this most striking building. Nor is it a dry recitation of architectural, engineering and construction quantities, concepts and terms. Rather, it is a seriously researched and entertainingly written history of the time, events and personalities leading to the conception and creation of the world's most famous skyscraper. Tauranac successfully tackles the challenge of explaining how this mere assemblage of steel and stone has attained such mystical status and continues, 70 years later, to attract admirers. This is a "must read" for the serious ESB fan, or for anyone interested in how this architectural icon was created.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book So Nice They Named It Twice 8 octobre 2004
Par John P Bernat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Well, they didn't, but it's a classic anyway.

This is a terrific book for anyone who wants to learn how great projects are visualized, actualized, and pressed through extremely challenging environmental circumstances. It's a source of inspiration for the dreamers and the practical alike.

If you want to read about architecture and engineering, you get only a small dose here. It's more about the capitalization, visioning and building. But that story is magnetic and wonderful.

Only thing they left out: that it was to this (then half-empty) building that Annhaeuser-Busch delivered the "first" case of legal beer to Al Smith at the end of Prohibition. Smith, the "wet" and the eternal optimist, exemplifies what this building was conceived to be: a vibrant and living testimony to the human spirit.

So, it stands to reason that it survives now as New York's essential symbol.
