"Photographer Dugan offers an urban alphabet, with color close-ups of letters on signs, billboards and the like (plus a line of identifying commentary) facing black-and-white shots of New York children, landmarks and street scenes seen mostly from low angles." - Kirkus Reviews
"It's no surprise that ABC NYC: A Book About Seeing New York City hits the sweet spot. Though designed as a learning tool for toddlers, the book is a typography lover's wet dream -- a stunning celebration of the alphabet's visual diversity, as seen on the streets of New York. Ten years in the making, the book features remarkable vintage urban typography, from graffiti to subway signs, captured across New York's five boroughs by photographer Joanne Dugan." - Brainpickings
"Mother and photographer extraordinaire Joanne Dugan has captured the bold visual vocabulary of the city and turned it into the stunning ABC NYC: A Book About Seeing New York. A = the Atlas sculpture at Rockefeller Center. B = bagel. C = Cosmopolitan straight up. (Kidding. It's actually Chrysler Building.) Expect ABC NYC to increase your child's cultural vocabulary as well. Y = Yarmulke is sure to inspire some more enlightening discussions than the yo-yo or yak you generally find in ABC books. " - Cool Mom Picks
"Who knew that even the alphabet can be New-Yorkified?" - Urban Baby

Others have mentioned that this is a great book for kids who live in NYC - but I bought it for kids who live in the country and aren't familiar with the sights of a city, and they loved it too. It's a great introduction to all the common, beautiful details and materials of an urban setting, along with being a good alphabet book.
An overall great book.
