Since we're all NY fans here, what skyscraper or NY books do you own?

I have this one, World Trade Center Remembered, it shows big colorful photos of the WTC's life...

I really like a book called The Chrysler Buldng : Creating a New York Icon, Day by Day

Basically a series of full page photo's of 150 pages charting the construction of the Chrysler Building, and then a few photo's from inside.

A great book not just about New York, but all of the great cities of the USA, is Cities from the Sky. It features New York in her architectural prime.

let see what I got....

Manhattan Skyscrapers
and New York from the Air (an architectural heritage)

that first one I bought it at a bargain in the Metropolitan museum for $15 or something around that price. I was actually shocked since books here in the netherlands are most of the time pretty expensive. Manhattan Skyscrapers here would easely cost something like $30-40...

oops forgot one book....

New York vertical (also got tha calender).

A must have for all you: Delirious New York by Rem Koolhaas. I saw it @ Barnes & Nobles last week for $30 or $40 dollar or something like that.
