But, as Dell Upton's insightful book tells us, we would be missing the mark by a wide margin if we focused only on the purely functional aspects of mercantile cities in the United States. Cities like Philadelphia and New Orleans, the foci of Upton's book, were rimmed by wharves and docks. iew Full Text.

Upton has written extensively on vernacular landscapes of the American built environment. His work on Colonial and Antebellum American include: Another City: Urban Life and Urban Spaces in the New American Republic (2008. New Haven: Yale University Press), Holy Things and Profane: Anglican Parish Churches in Colonial Virginia (1986. Cambridge: MIT Press), Madaline: Love and Survival in Antebellum New Orleans (1996. Athens: University of Georgia Press), and America’s Architectural Roots: Ethnic Groups That Built America (Washington: Preservation Press).

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, burgeoning American cities like New Orleans and Philadelphia seemed increasingly chaotic. Noise, odors, and a feverish level of activity on the streets threatened to overwhelm the senses. Growing populations placed new demands on every aspect of the urban landscape-streets, parks, schools, asylums, cemeteries, markets, waterfronts, and more. In this unique exploration of the early history of urban architecture and design, leading architectural historian Dell Upton reveals the fascinating confluence of sociological, cultural, and psychological factors.

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, burgeoning American cities like New Orleans and Philadelphia seemed increasingly chaotic. Noise, odors, and a feverish level of activity on the streets threatened to overwhelm the senses. Growing populations placed new demands on every aspect of the urban landscape―streets, parks, schools, asylums, cemeteries, markets, waterfronts, and more. In this unique exploration of the early history of urban architecture and design, leading architectural historian Dell Upton reveals the fascinating confluence of sociological, cultural, and psychological factors that shaped American cities in the antebellum years.

Through contemporary travel accounts, diaries, and correspondence, as well as maps, architectural drawings, paintings, and prints―many previously unpublished--Upton investigates not only how buildings were designed, streets were laid out, and urban space was put to use, but also why. He offers original insights into the way cities were imagined, and an extensive selection of illustrations recreates the various features of the urban landscape in the nineteenth century.

I love all of Dell Upton's work, but this is a masterful take on early American urban history. Easy to read if you are interested in the topic.
