about

Twentieth-century New York is now famous as the city of "cliff dwellers," but in the second half of the nineteenth century, middle-class apartments in Manhattan were a new—and somewhat suspect—architectural form. Alone Together presents a history of the "invention" of New York apartment houses.

From Our Editors

New York City has always been on the cutting edge of archaeology. After the Civil War, New York City became the home to buildings designed as multiple dwellings for middle-class families. In Alone Together: A History of New York’s Early Apartments, Elizabeth Collins Cromley describes the apartments of New Yorkers of every class and their rising expectations over the years.

Editorial Reviews

"Cromley explores in words, vintage photographs and architects' drawings the evolution of the Big Apple's apartment blocks. . . . More than just architectural history, this is a glimpse at the evolution of American urban culture."—Publishers Weekly
