Columbia University in Pictures by Lenny Pridatko (Author, Editor) and Maria Babrova (Illustrator)


Columbia University in Pictures is a collection of 190 stunning photographs showcasing the University over a span of 270 years. Covering all seasons and times of day, this wide-ranging collection offers a refreshingly new perspective of New York's oldest university. Vivid photographs and illustrations capture elaborate architectural details and the text elucidates lesser-known facts about the University: its oldest owned property is a cemetery plot in Brooklyn, gifted to the University in 1847.

Columbia University is one of New York City's architectural jewels - on par with more familiar tourist attractions such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty - and the images in the title make this self-evident. The second edition showcases the University s birthplace, growth, and current global reach with images dating back to the 18th century.

Soon after enrolling in the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, Lenny Pridatko discovered New York's hidden secret in the form of the university's stunning architecture and vibrant history. The idea for the book soon followed: its intention, to give long overdue credit to Columbia University's contribution to New York's skyline. Pridatko founded his publishing company in 2012 and released the original Columbia University in Pictures a few months later. He has published a completely revised title in 2019 .
