A beautiful book. New York as one seldom (if ever) sees it. If you know any ex-pat New Yorkers living elsewhere who miss their hometown this book makes a wonderful gift to remind them of what they left behind, but also gives them a fresh way of seeing it. Though shot while the city sleeps and its inhabitants are nowhere to be seen, New York seems gloriously alive in these photographs. It is as if in the evident sense of silence that accompanies these images you somehow feel the steady, deep heartbeat of a slumbering giant. The images themselves are timeless, looking as much like a record of a long lost civilization as it is a profile of the city we know and live in today. Books such as this make me wonder how they could ever be replaced by some as yet unrealized digital version. This is not something you could appreciate on any e-reader, no matter how beautiful and sophisticated a wonder Apple might dream up. It is about the richness of ink on paper and the kinesthetic experience of feeling the size and weight of the book in your hands and the pages between your fingers.

having just been to New York and understood why everyone calls it a city which never sleeps, it is really great to see the city without anyone in the pictures. Technically well done and printed well too. if you are after a "different" book on NY this is the one !

Lived in NYC for long enough...never really saw this city like Chistopher Thomas did...He's just a master photographer with amazing point of view (BEAUTIFUL framing, perfect exposure...etc.!!!) I'm already overwhelemed by images on this book and I just can't imagine how it'll be like in original prints!!!

I bought this book for a friend as a gift, and they were blown away. He's a photographer and has an eye and appreciation for this type of technique and work, and couldn't be happier with the book. I had the chance to flip through the book before giving it away, and it was spectacular. From the foreword to the photographer's photos, a lot of time and effort was put into the detail of crafting this collection of photos. And what a remarkable way to display one of the greatest cities in the world!

Spectacular photographs. Gorgeous book. Some of the best photos I've ever seen that were shot with Polaroid film. You can't go wrong if you purchase this book.
