Even as he denounced New York as an "unlivable prison," Frank Lloyd Wright reveled in its culture and was shaped by its energy. The city became an urban foil for Wright's work in the desert, and at the end of his life, he designed the Guggenheim Museum, the building that would cement his legacy. Mining the recently opened Wright archives held by Columbia University and the MoMA, Anthony Alofsin traces Wright's love/hate connection to NYC, and the book includes black and white illustrations throughout.
