NEW YORK CITY IN 3D IN THE GILDED AGE

The Gilded Age (1870-1900) was a time of rapid growth and prosperity in New York City. Half of the millionaires in the country  lived there, landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge were constructed, and Cornelius Vanderbilt's vast wealth enabled him to build the largest home in its history, occupying an entire city block on Fifth Avenue. While many made their fortunes, it was also a time of grave disparity between rich and poor, when three out of four New Yorkers were struggling immigrants and half the city's population lived in tenements.

New York City in 3D in the Gilded Age brings this transformative era in the history of one of the world's greatest cities to life through 50 vivid 3D, stereoscopic images and a photo-packed book that capture, with stunning clarity, the burgeoning urban landscape.
