Everything you need to heighten your enjoyment of the park 27 May 2009
By Eileen M. North - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The inside cover is a map. Inside the well organized book there are chapters on each section of the park going south to north with individual section maps and historical and current descriptions of what to see. Everything you need to heighten your enjoyment of the park. My 5 year old grandniece uses the pictures as a guide and check offs of what she has seen. I have lived here 30 years and the book is educating me.

It is a small book 21 Jan 2010
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very nicely produced book, but my expectation was a coffee table book. It is actually VERY small, which doesn't do the photos justice. Check the dimensions before purchasing.

Like Getting a Giant Hug from the Worlds Favorite Park 4 Dec 2009
By Mara Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What an incredible little book!! If you enjoyed Sara Cedar Miller's "Central Park: An American Masterpiece" you'll definitely enjoy "Seeing Central Park". Miller's knowledge of the park is unparalleled, and her intelligent and tender writing humanizes the park even for those of us who live in New York, and walk through the park and enjoy it on a regular basis. I rarely review things but having recently given this book as a gift to a few friends and getting even for those who don't live in New York, learning about the history and contribution to the city which Olmstead and Vaux made when they designed the park. I've bought a case of the books as Christmas presents for various friends who have seen my copy of the book and marveled over the beauty of the pictures of the park and the city which surrounds it. Its a true gift for any lover of NYC.

Most importantly - the content and production of the book are stellar - the photos are beautiful and unlike most traditional 'guidebooks' the quality of printing is exquisite. The book is arranged in sections of ascending segments of the streets and then by the individual areas which are contained in that 10 block chunk of streets. There is also an adorable and useful map printed on the inside of the dust jacket so you can orient yourself in the park as you read through the book.

Miller's photography and writing are stellar - witty and informative, the book seems more like an informative conversation than a lecture. An excellent purchase to be sure!

New York trip guide or gift 15 July 2010
By Laurie Caballero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I gave this as a gift to a High School graduate who will be going away to college in NYC. Her 'thank you card' was sincere and lovely, I am hoping that the book takes her to Central Park locales which inspire her art studies. Lovely, well sized (smallish) book with photo plates of nice quality and printed well. Not coffee table book but rather one that you can stick in a tote (approx ipad size!).
