With the same wit and perception that distinguished his stylish books on Paris, London and Rome, M. Sasek now pictures fabulous, big-hearted New York City!

The Dutchman who bought the island of Manhattan from the Indians in 1626 for twenty-four dollars worth of handy housewares little knew that his was the biggest bargain in American history. For everything about New York is big—the buildings, the traffic jams, the cars, the stores, 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.  The brass, the beauty, the magic.

This is New York!
