New York, Portrait of a City is a photographic journey through the history of the New York. This book presents the epic story of New York on nearly 600 pages of emotional, atmospheric photographs, from the mid-19th century to the present day. Supplementing this treasure trove of images are over a hundred quotations and references from relevant books, movies, shows and songs. The city's fluctuating fortunes are all represented, from the wild nights of the Jazz Age and the hedonistic disco era, to the grim days of the Depression and the devastation of 9/11 and its aftermath, as its broken-hearted but unbowed citizens picked up the pieces.
in this book are hundreds of iconic images, sourced from dozens of
archives and private collections—many never before published—and the
work of over 150 celebrated photographers. Below is a collection of some
