I've just found the most marvelous picture book ever about my favorite place, New York City. 480 pages of oversize drawings, paintings, maps, posters, playbills, music sheets, photographs and assorted artifacts — all beautifully printed on heavy stock in a hardbound coffee table book — chronicle the entire history of the metropolis from its beginning in 1609 right up to the present in 2009. This is an absolute must for anyone who loves the city.
And it's a bargain!
Even at the list price of $40.00 it's more than worthwhile, but Amazon (bless them) has it for only $21.60 (and eligible for free shipping).
New York 400 was created from the vast archives of The Museum of the City of New York, whose mandate is to explore the past, present, and future of the Big Apple. You can read all about it, along with reviews, by clicking on its name in the box below.
