You can however regret, specially if you regard the cult of celebrity as essentially baleful, that Mr. Pericoli chose to have his "subjects" be "famous" for some thing or other. Baryshnikov, Batali, Doctorow, Glass, Koch, Leibovitz, etc, etc, etc: the list reads like an orgy of name dropping. Of course, a few of the participants have interesting, even illuminating comments; I was touched by Ethan Herschenfeld's wistfulness for instance, and loved, as I always do, David Byrne's pungent irony. But so many others are perfunctory, not to say cringe worthy, like Baryshnikov's comment that the undeniably remarkable building he gazes on looks "better at night... like a woman". Er, sure, Mikhail, much like the wine I tasted yesterday evening in fact... just like a woman. Those who like to indulge in copious schadenfreude may also take pleasure in the realization that, at least in New York, some of the rich and famous share vistas as boring as those the average city dweller often wakes up to. Ultimately, this is a lovely book to give as a gift: I'll pass it to my younger brother in whose eyes the lights of the city still sparkle. Of course, he never lived here and only came to visit.
Thank you for opening your homes and sharing your views with Matteo and those of us who purchase this book.
Ended up reading into it myself, then looking at every page-- every week. Pericoli is a talented illustrator and cartoonist, well-know in Europe, deserving more fame in the US.Sometimes illustrators do more than photography. This is a good book for those who love cartoonists, original graphic artists and of course, New York City!
Each of the 63 drawings are truly pieces of art. The bookbinding is strong and very nice. This is much more than a coffee table book !
Strongly recommended to the New Yorkers, born and bred, and from abroad !
A lovely book about NYC in eyes and words of many known VIPs.
The last years I've been in New York I made the same things:
photographs out of my hotelroom windows and at home I made the drawings.
So I remember every time om my stays in New York.

63 views on New York does not lie. If you want a nicely-put-together, accurately-titled art book, then by all means, proceed without fear.Published on November 9, 2011 by J. Dermeyer

Gave this to my daughter-in-law. She is very well-informed and would know the most of the people who are mentioned. She lived in Manhattan for years and still works there. Read morePublished on January 23, 2010 by Yaya Yinny
