New York is one of the world's megacities, with almost 20 million people living in the wider metropolitan area. America's most populous city has been described as the cultural, financial and media capital of the world. It is also a universally recognizable city, home of the Manhattan skyline, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge and the headquarters of the United Nations.
New York provides a pictorial exploration of the city's five boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island. The book introduces the reader to some classic architecture, such as the art deco Chrysler Building and Empire State Building; quirky neighborhoods, such as Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and Hell's Kitchen; iconic landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center; and great cultural centres, such as Broadway, the home of North American theatre; Times Square, the 'Crossroads of the World'; and Madison Square Garden, an indoor sports and events arena.
Presented in a pocket-sized landscape format and with captions explaining the story behind each photo, New York is a stunning collection of images that vividly brings to life the world's greatest city.
