An invitation to explore the distinct and diverse charms of the many neighbourhoods, both big and small, that make up the multifaceted splendour that is New York.
New York by Neighborhood, photographed by New York native Andrew Garn, offers a vibrant visual tapestry of 75 distinct locales, defined as much by individual residents as by shops, by architecture, by streets, by stories and traditions, and by history, all of which come together to form the greatest city on earth.
More languages are spoken on the streets of New York than anywhere else in the world, and a testament to this diversity is the city's rich array of neighbourhoods. From Arthur Avenue's Little Italy in the Bronx, with its authentic age-old restaurants and shops, and Astoria, Queens, a bustling community still marked by a strong Greek presence, to Manhattan's Chinatown and Greenwich Village, the book looks at the essential New York. Providing in each case a snapshot of a place and its people, as well as brief texts incorporating anecdotes, cultural milestones, and fascinating historical facts, this volume will appeal to visitors who want the full picture of NYC; as well, it will appeal to the resident, who continues to marvel at the vast array of wonders that make up the city that never sleeps.
