New York City
By Peter Mavrikis (Author)
America's most populous city has been described as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world. It is also a universally recognizable city, home of the Manhattan skyline, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, and the headquarters of the United Nations. New York City provides a pictorial exploration of the city's five boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island. The book introduces the reader to some classic architecture, such as the art deco Chrysler Building and Empire State Building; quirky neighborhoods, such as Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and Hell's Kitchen; iconic landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center; and great cultural centers, such as Broadway, the home of North American theater; Times Square, the “Crossroads of the World”; and Madison Square Garden, an indoor sports and events arena.
