Product description

From beloved author, illustrator and New Yorker Julia Rothman comes this visual homage to the city she calls home. With humour and tenderness, Rothman offers an eclectic assortment of quirky historical titbits (how the lion sculptures in front of the New York Public Library got their names), expertise on idiosyncratic places to visit (where to find the tennis courts at Grand Central Station), interviews with locals (thoughts on love and life from a Hasidic Jewish landlord) and personal recollections from growing up in the Bronx (eating fried fish at Johnny's Reef)--all illustrated in her signature whimsical, hand-drawn style. An illustrated city guide that's as entertaining as it is informative, this is a treasure for anyone who hearts New York.

Review quote

"Julia Rothman has been one of my favorite illustrators for the past ten years, and this book hit home with me in a way that few other books have ever done. From heartfelt poems dedicated to New York City's bodegas to the beautifully illustrated ceilings of Grand Central Station, Hello, New York is both a welcome guide to visitors and new residents and a familiar friend to those who grew up here." - Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge
