5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent study of virtually unknown parts of N.Y.C., 10 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Invisible New York: The Hidden Infrastructure of the City: The Hidden Infastructure of the City (Creating the North American Landscape) (Hardcover)
This book lived up to my expectations with it's beautiful photographs, insightful comments about each location photographed and rich, deep printing. A great book for anyone interested in wonderful black and white location photography, or in learning more about New York City and its' surroundings.

This review is from: Invisible New York: The Hidden Infrastructure of the City: The Hidden Infastructure of the City (Creating the North American Landscape) (Hardcover)
This book was a pleasant surprise, my main grief being that it did not cover more sites. More background information on the sites portrayed would also have been welcome, though one cannot really fault the author for this - this is clearly a photo book, not a weighty tome on inaccessible infrastructure.

The photos, then, are in one word STUNNING. Portraying such diverse locations as an abandoned missile site, a sewer pump works and the attic above NY's Grand Central Station, the detail captured is simply amazing, and the photographer really works the light to present each location in the best (pun intended) possible light, the B&W reproduction making it easier to focus on the sheer beauty of the structures shown.

This book made me tick both photography- and urban exploration-wise; highly recommended for anyone with an interest in either.
