Arguably the nation’s premier city, New York has defined the modern metropolitan landscape for the world for over a century. It’s not surprising that New York even served as the original capital of the United States. Today, millions upon millions of visitors walk through the city’s canyons with sheer skyscraper walls. Even though many get a glimpse of the city from observation decks, they will never get such a spectacular picture of New York as this book provides. Specially commissioned aerial photography reveals every part of this magnificent town, from the Battery all the way to Harlem and beyond. You will see the shipping docks spread finger-like into the Hudson and East Rivers. New York from the Air will be enjoyed by the armchair traveler, as well as by anyone who has made the pilgrimage to the Big Apple.
