Lieblingsstadt: New York

Nach dem ganz netten Buch über die Liebespaare und wie sie einander trafen und einer kurzen Abhandlung, wie ihr weiteres Leben verlaufen ist, werde ich mich heute wieder meiner Lieblingsstadt widmen:

New York
You're a wonderful Town
Fifty-plus Years of Chronicling Gotham

Product Description: New York City is an object of awe, desire, and disparagement, an image both alluring and, often, frightening. A magnet to tourism, it is also home to eight million people of every race, color and creed. For over 50 years, Henrik Krogius has roamed its avenues and streets, photographing and describing many facets of its vibrant and varied life. His focus is not on famous buildings-though he depicts many-but on people who live and work here. With the eyes of one of the city's many celebrants, he describes a city that is traversed by visitor and resident alike, yet not consciously observed by most. He gives us the New York we see in passing, but rarely pause to reflect upon-the familiar made special.In these pages one sees New York today, but also, thanks to his constant camera, how it looked and evolved over the past five decades.
