I gave this book to a New York native who was absolutely enthralled with it. She could hardly keep her hands off it during the party. Photos are wonderful. Only con is that it is so large that one can't carry it around. It almost has to be a coffee table book.

A big, satisfying brick of a book in a sturdy slipcase. Gifty.

Quite a monster: 975 pp, just under 5 pounds almost entirely color photographs, on heavy paper.

A truly comprehensive look at the city of New York in the 2000's. High-brow, low-brow, and no-brow.

Principal photographers Ishii, Mason have a particular affinity for street culture. Sure, there's a lot of architecture here, but most of the images are human-scale, human-sized, carefully composed. Stuff you could see every day if you took the time to really look.

The book is studded with quotes from notables like Auster, de Kooning, Irving Berlin.

With some Appendices and an index.

Book has a lot of photos of various parts of New York. That is why the book is soooo thick! If so many pictures are going to be put into a book, make the book larger or do volumes. This would help to make the book easier to look at.
