Antonio Masi, fascinated by New York City bridges since childhood, began painting them a decade ago. He is drawn particularly to the 59th Street (the recently renamed Ed Koch Queensboro) Bridge, which his grandfather Francesco Masi helped build. Masi has won national and global acclaim for his paintings of New York City bridges.

In "New York's Golden Age of Bridges", artist Antonio Masi teams up with writer and New York City historian Joan Marans Dim to offer a multidimensional exploration of New York City's nine major bridges, their artistic and cultural underpinnings, and their impact worldwide.

• Masi's paintings are reproduced in lavish color, making a great coffee table book for New Yorkers, ex-New Yorkers, and wishes-they-were-New Yorkers.
• Dim's essays are heartfelt reflections that exude a love for New York and wonder at the city's architectural marvels. Each Chapter offers a microhistory of the bridge, incorporating art, politics, city planning and infrastructure.
• Both the paintings and the essays reflect highly personal connections with the bridges: Masi in particular is inspired by his own grandfather's work on the Queensboro.
