Mark Houser, author

Adult; History & Military; (Market)

More than 100 years ago, towering marvels like New York's Flatiron Building thrilled the public and transformed cities across the country. Now take a tour of the best of these elegant landmarks still standing today in 31 U.S. and 5 international cities. Packed with colorful tales of the powerful executives and self-made millionaires who commissioned the country's first skyscrapers, MultiStories also traces the emergence of modern corporations in banking, media, transportation, insurance, manufacturing, entertainment, and other industries that fed the explosive growth of American cities at the start of the 20th century.
Reviews
Andrew Masich, Heinz History Center president

"Well conceived and beautifully written — just the right combination of history, architecture, and human interest stories to engage and satisfy a broad audience of readers."

Jim Hunt, Amazing Cities Podcast host

"An amazing book about how skyscrapers have helped to build our cities and provide iconic images that resonate throughout the world. I enjoyed it immensely."

Peg Breen, New York Landmarks Conservancy president

"Buildings tell stories, and Mark Houser has captured them in a fascinating look at historic skyscrapers from an era of growth and optimism."

 

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Historic plaques serve a purpose but people are way more interesting. ... Mark Houser demonstrates that approach beautifully in his engaging new book, “MultiStories: 55 Antique Skyscrapers & the Business Tycoons Who Built Them.”
