M AC K  AY  , E DITOR   As the great country houses of the Gilded Age rose at the beginning of the twentieth century, another suburban phenomenon saw the development of “residential parks,” or garden suburbs, built for people of more modest means seeking to escape the city. Some of the same architects and landscape architects who designed the country houses were involved in these gardens of Eden of the Progressive Era—as well as community builders who were visionaries, realtors, financiers, and intrepid residents who risked living in regions where paved roads, shopping centers, and gas stations were still in the future to live in high-end, care-fully conceived communities on New York’s Long Island. Gardens of Eden  recounts the history and development of more than twenty of these remarkable places and the colorful, at times unscrupulous personalities behind them—like Plandome, designed “for teachers only,” and the Metropolitan Museum’s Munsey Park, where all the streets were named for artists—in essays by the most knowledgeable historians and 300 archival photographs and illustrations. Robert B. MacKay, PhD , is the emeritus director of the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities.ISBN: 978-0-393-73321-1 / March 2015 / 300 illustrations / 320 pages / hardcover / $65.00 SALVAGE SECRETS DESIGN & DECOR Transform Your Home with Reclaimed Materials  J OANNE  P ALMISANO , P HOTOGRAPHS   BY   S USAN  T EARE “[A] fantastic introductory guide to salvage that is sure to set the greenest of beginners onto a path of salvage stardom….With nearly 300 pages full of beautifully crisp photographs, resources, and design tips, Palmisano’s book offers a wide sampling of the many ingenious ways to repurpose materials and save them from ending up in the rubbish bin.”— Inhabitat  “[Palmisano] takes readers on a sumptuous visual journey featuring unique salvage ideas for every room in the house….Take a look at this photo-packed book and be inspired to visit your local rebuild center, architectural salvage shop, or flea market.

Mail-boxes were focal points in lobbies and public spaces throughout the country: Grand Central Terminal, the Woolworth Building, the St. Regis Hotel, York & Sawyer’s Lincoln Building, and many more. While some have been removed, forgotten, disused, or painted over, others are still in use, are polished daily, and hold pride of place in lobbies throughout the country. Karen Greene  is a photographer. Lynne Lavelle  is editor of Period Homes  magazine and a freelance writer. She is also coauthor of Creating CityCenter   (page 31).ISBN: 978-0-393-73340-2 / December 2014 / 150 color illustrations / 160 pages / paperback / $26.95 GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY URBAN LANDSCAPES R OBIN  L  YNN   AND  F RANCIS  M ORRONE , P HOTOGRAPHY    BY   E DWARD  A.
