About this Item

Square 4to. Photographically illustrated by Bill Barrette. Original pictorial wrappers, fine and as-new. With poems by John Yau and photographs by Bill Barrette, this shows a "New York as it is" view of the city, unvarnished "immense and ultimately unknowable." Distributed by Rizzoli, it was praised by John Ashbery: "This 'record of gregarious surfaces' is the ultimate dream-Baedeker of New York -- essential reading and viewing for locals, tourists, and out-of-body travelers.".
