For many in this fast-paced, high-tech world, reading anything over 140 characters has become a bit vieux jeu, but New York architect Robert AM Stern has gone against the grain. In his latest project, 20 East End Avenue (www.20eastend.com; from $4.5m to $35m, pictured), an 18-storey condominium on the Upper East Side, Stern has handpicked the books for a private library of New York history. The collection will not only furnish a (very elegant) room, but will conjure up an entire Manhattan lifestyle, with tomes on skyscrapers to city mayors. To gain a library card, all you’ll need is the key to one of the 43 residences.
