"After the Civil War, New York City developed an architectural form new to North America-a building designed as a multiple dwelling for middle-class families. The author chronicles the technological and the social evolution of the apartment house. Along the way, she describes the domestic manners of New Yorkers of every class, from tenement-dwellers to the inhabitants of luxury apartments, and their rising expectations (indoor plumbing, for example) over a period of fifty years.".
