Book Description

1 May 2011
Here is a New York in which you, finally, have the upper hand ...and the bird's eye view.A" - Chicago Tribune The city's familiar buildings appear so cleanly bathed in golden light that you feel almost sorry for all of us who must view them from the ground.A" - The New York Times Completely updated with additional photographs and new text, New York from the Air is a lush, romantic and ultimately hopeful tribute to one of the most thrilling cities in the world. World-renowned bestselling photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand - shooting from vantage points that few humans ever attain - presents the power and beauty of Manhattan's amazing skyscrapers, the bucolic joys of Central Park, the majesty of the Upper West Side's castle-like mansions and much, much more. This new edition includes previously unpublished photographs of new landmarks built since the release of the second edition in 2003. New York historian and cartographer John Tauranac's lively commentaries lead readers on a truly spectacular tour. The new photography comprises 20-25% of the book. Arthus-Bertrand will be in New York starting in November 2009 to document new and renovated sites in the city.

4.0 out of 5 stars New York architecture at it's best! 1 Oct 2002
This book has some of the best photographs of New York architecture I have seen. The photographs are large and detailed and the text that goes with each one is informative but not to long, so you feel you want to read it - did you know that the Chrysler Building when it was first built, was criticised for its hideous looks, but now is one of NYs best loved buildings? You will after reading this beautifully put together book! The only disappointment I felt was that it doesn't have enough overhead shots of streets and New Yorkers going about their business but focuses only on buildings. There are some great overhead shots of Central Park and the buildings that surround it but these are few and far between. - Look out for the man sun bathing on a rock in Central Park!

Bought as a present for architect son who has been to New York. We found it fascinating as we had just returned from a visit to New York. Pictures are excellent in a large format. The way the lighting has been captured is very good. An excellent purchase and welcomed by the recipient.
Book is a large size which makes it difficult to store.
