Synopses & Reviews
Diverse and vivacious, artistic, audacious, and always inspirational, there are many definitions of New York. In a photographic tour that goes beyond the cliches of this spirited city, Assouline presents a unique portrait of New York City with pictures that are at once modern, elegant, and bold. From its intimate details to its iconic architecture, here are over nine hundred images that illuminate the mantra, "Only in New York." There is Central Park and Carnegie Hall, of course, but also Mott Street, Jackson Heights, and the Apollo. With an entertaining introduction by Tama Janowitz and an appendix of Assouline's favorite hotels, restaurants, museums, and special services, New York is the quintessential illustrated volume on the world's greatest city.
