New York City has an energy all its own. It might just be the center of the world, or at least the center of fashion, media, business, and culture (which seems pretty qualifying for “center of the world”). Though its icons like the Empire State Building and Lady Liberty are timeless, resident New Yorkers and tourists alike know that the city is always changing, each neighborhood distinct from one block to the next. NYC’s diversity, vibrancy, and constant ebb and flow are what make it so unique.
Whether you’re a born New Yorker, just passing through, or a far away admirer, our selection of books all about New York City celebrate everything from its skyline to its street style. Discover hidden gems like Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery or colorful neighborhood shop fronts.
