A Guide to New York's Celebrated and Underrated Urban Landscapes

If you haven't managed to escape from, or you've managed to escape to, New York City this holiday weekend you might be pleased to learn that a new guide to the city's urban landscapes has been published by Norton Architecture and Design Books.

"In just the nick of time for outdoor summer weekends in New York City, Norton Architecture and Design Books has released a Guide to New York City Urban Landscapes. It’s a concise and beautifully illustrated guide to thirty-eight public spaces that claims to be the 'first wide-ranging survey of New York urban landscapes from the first half of the nineteenth century to, well, tomorrow.'”

"This is perfect book to consult before your relatives come to town and expect an insider’s tour of the city or before you pass by an unknown bit of green in the city," says William Menking. "Many of the urban landscapes described in the guide are likely known only by nearby residents or only the most keen city observers."
