I saw this book in The Metropolitan Museum of Art but it was far too heavy to consider carrying back to the UK. So I was thrilled to find that I could purchase a copy from Amazon to be delivered to my home.
This book is one of the very best I have seen of it's type, the photographs are wonderful and it is a must for every person who loves New York and especially for anyone who has yet to visit the City or is unlikely to be able to.
Also consider purchasing 'Store Fronts' another book of photographs taken by the same Authors of the shop fronts of many of local stores. Some are still there and it is a joy to recognise them when turning the pages. Others have been replaced by clean, modern, characterless glass and their history lost.
