Never Built New York

Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin’s new book Never Built New York pictures bold, never-built designs for the city like bad boy architect Raymond Hood’s “Skyscraper Bridge” (above). Hood proposed over a dozen bridges over Manhattan’s rivers, lined with skyscrapers 50 or 60 stories high. There would be amenities on the bridges—shop and theaters—and elevators to the river for water sports.
