Book Description

6 Oct 2006
"New York: 365 Days" is the equivalent of a walking tour through time and space. Beginning with New Year's Day, the reader takes a fascinating and evocative journey through the New York Year, stopping at such calendrical landmarks as the opening of the baseball season, the Fourth of July, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center, illustrated with compelling "then and now" photographs that capture the changing look of the city. We see New Yorkers sunbathing in Central Park in the summer and hurrying through snowy Times Square in the winter; gathering in restaurants and clubs; meditating in the city's great museums; and enjoying quiet moments on fire escapes and park benches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chunky Big Apple 28 Sep 2007
A thick, 744 page book presenting the flavor of the world's premier city. Though the title suggests a visual year it is more a selection of photos arranged round themes: sports, travel, markets, the weather, construction, entertainment, civic events, personalities etc. Each gets a few pages with some images going back to the nineteenth century though most are from the thirties onward.

I thought the selection was quite impressive, there is something for every New Yorker here. Some of the names of the fifty-one photographers in the index will be familiar to readers of the Times. Neal Bonenzi, Sam Falk, Vincent Laforet and Ernie Sisto get the largest showing. Two of Laforet's are particularly stunning: his night time Manhattan skyline from July four 2005 with the sky alight with fireworks and the amazing shot from January thirteen, 2001 looking down on two workman repairing a colored light at the top of the radio mast on the Empire State (I was always curious about this photo because neither of them are wearing hard hats). An unfortunate omission, perhaps, is any work by Weegee. He brilliantly captured the lives of the working class over the years but his photos only appeared in the down-market tabloids.

The landscape format of the book works perfectly, the photos (with some in colour) are either one to a page or one to a spread, and all have comprehensive captions. This is a fascinating book, dip into it anytime to remind you of the rhythm of the city.

*I wonder if the publishers will do similar versions using the photo libraries of other great metro papers like the San Francisco 'Chronicle', Chicago 'Tribune' or the Washington 'Post'?

5.0 out of 5 stars New York 365 days 23 April 2009
This book, New York 356 days, is one very good purchase I enjoy.
I have this book on the table of our living room for all our guests to see.
They have found the fate of "Normandie" resting on its side in the New York harbor.
When "United States" is arriving from her maiden voyage to her homeport and when the elevated steam-powered trains travelled along Third avenue. Where people crowded at White Star Office awaiting news of the "Titanic" disaster.
All these internationally known events are giving stimulus for topic of conversation, even tough I am living far away.
The book is easy to leaf through and is well done with excellent pictures.
Heikki Gartz, Helsinki, Finland.

4.0 out of 5 stars "A Picture is worth a thousand words" 28 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"A Picture is worth a thousand words" reputedly uttered by an Advertising Industry Journalist and how apt for the Big Apple. the only trouble with books as diverse as this is that they leave you wanting more... More depth on certain chosen images, the stories behind them etc. If you like NY and you like good photography then you'll enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good. 17 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The only minus would be that the reproduction quality is not excellent, but it is good enough. The range of photos is amazing, and they span along time period. It is a good coffee table book and does the title justice.
