Description

Here is a New York in which you, finally, have the upper hand ...and the bird's eye view. The city's familiar buildings appear so cleanly bathed in golden light that you feel almost sorry for all of us who must view them from the ground. Completely updated with additional photographs and new text, New York from the Air is a lush, romantic and ultimately hopeful tribute to one of the most thrilling cities in the world. World-renowned bestselling photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand - shooting from vantage points that few humans ever attain - presents the power and beauty of Manhattan's amazing skyscrapers, the bucolic joys of Central Park, the majesty of the Upper West Side's castle-like mansions and much, much more. This new edition includes previously unpublished photographs of new landmarks built since the release of the second edition in 2003. New York historian and cartographer John Tauranac's lively commentaries lead readers on a truly spectacular tour. The new photography comprises 20-25% of the book. Arthus-Bertrand will be in New York starting in November 2009 to document new and renovated sites in the city.
