Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Matteo Pericoli, the celebrated author of Manhattan Unfurled, comes a unique collection of illustrated cityscapes. In these intimate drawings of window views, Pericoli captures the essence of the city by showing us what New Yorkers see when they look out their windows.

The City Out My Window shows us a series of private New Yorks, as seen by Tom Wolfe, Tony Kushner, Nora Ephron, Stephen Colbert, Richard Meier, Oliver Sacks, Mario Batali, David Byrne, and other artists, writers, and thinkers who help make the city what it is. The book includes their comments on what they see out their window and is introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger.

About the Author

Matteo Pericoli, a graduate of the Polytechnic School of Architecture, moved to New York in 1995, where he has worked as an architect, illustrator, author, journalist, and teacher. His drawings  have been published in various newspapers and magazines, in the U.S., in Italy, and elsewhere—including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Conde' Nast Traveler, Travel & Leisure, Il Corriere della Sera, and La Stampa, among others.
