This is a nice little compendium of selected Fifth Avenue architectural treats. Taking us all the way from Washington Square Park up to the Conservatory Gardens (105th), we get thumbnail sketches of some of the most stunning (mostly) 19th and early 20th century in the city if not the world. The book is a great companion for walkers. (I once walked from the Metropolitan Museum (84th) all the away down to Washington Square Park, so I know people people take this grand walking tour.)

This little bundle of pages is packed with facts, influences, and photos of many famous buildings on Museum Mile. This book is also a perfect quick read for an architecture or history enthusiast.
