NEW YORK ARCHITECTURE


The unique urban landscape of America’s largest and most beloved city is celebrated in this chess set, lovingly handcrafted of exotic woods from around the world. The intricately fashioned playing pieces recreate the architectural styles of New York, including kings and queens modeled after the distinctive high-rises that form the famous skyline; bishops shaped like great urban churches; castles with the semi-fortified look of the city’s armories; and knights fashioned after distinctive manors.

Each unique pawn recreates the varied façades of the brownstones and row houses that give each borough it’s own personality. The pieces are stored safely in a velvet-lined divided drawer beneath the chess board.
