Happy New Year from Princeton Architectural Press!

"In 1775 there were thirty-one newspapers being published in the thirteen colonies; sixty years later, the number was twelve hundred. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the world of print resembled today’s online news landscape in its sheer breadth, variety, and diversity of voices, including the now-iconic “yellow journalists” and the “muckrakers” who exposed society’s ills." —Arianna Huffington

“In many ways, Prospect Park is Brooklyn, a melting pot of immigrants and longtime residents, athletes and readers, artists and bankers. It is a place for our quietest reflections or our happiest celebrations. And like Brooklyn, the whole of Prospect Park is even greater than the sum of these wonderful parts.”
—Spike Lee, film director
