This book offers a terrific browse for inhabitants of NYC as well as those on the outside. The photos of the city were selected from the many millions in the New York Times photo archives and are presented in an appealing, horizontal format (9.5x6.5"). No attempt was made to cover every subject or every part of the city; images were chosen simply because they stand out in some way--as newsworthy or as particularly memorable or evocative. Each is accompanied by a caption or a paragraph or two setting the context. The rationale for the arrangement is a bit mysterious (not thematic, not chronological), but there is an index for those seeking something specific.
