NEW YORK: CITY OF ISLANDS

The islands that form New York City are far more subtle and varied than the five that can be seen from the air. In this spectacular portrait of the great metropolis, renowned photographer Jake Rajs juxtaposes iconic views--the Empire State Building, the Hudson River skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge--with unheralded neighborhoods and hidden places throughout the five boroughs.

SIDEWALK GARDENS OF NEW YORK

Written by Whitaker, Alicia
"New York City looks nothing--nothing--like it did just a decade and a half ago. It's a place of newly gorgeous waterfront promenades, of trees, tall grasses and blooming flowers on patches of land and peninsulas of concrete and even stretches of rail tracks that were blighted or blank before."

Written by Wurts, Richard
The New York World's Fair 1939/1940 may not have been the greatest of all world's fairs, but it is probably the most fondly remembered of all of them, a spectacle that no one who was there has forgotten. The 700-foot-tall Trylon and the 200-foot-wide Perisphere are still vivid symbols and memories of a wonderful and lost time for millions of people.
