With the same wit and perception that distinguished his stylish books on Paris, London, and Rome, M. Sasek portrays fabulous, big-hearted New York City in This is New York, first published in 1960 and now updated for the 21st century.  The Dutchman who bought the island of Manhattan from the Native Americans in 1626 for $24 worth of handy housewares little knew that it was the biggest bargain in American history. Everything about New York is big: the buildings, the traffic jams, the cars, the Sunday papers.  Here is the Staten Island Ferry, the Statue of Liberty, MacDougal Alley in Greenwich Village, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Harlem, Chinatown, Central Park. This is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the 21st century, appearing on a “This is New York Today” page at the back of the book.
