Overview

Completely updated, the new edition of this acclaimed guide brings us 33 tours of public art, covering the length of the island, from the Cloisters and Harlem in northern Manhattan, to Central Park and the museum mile, to Rockefeller Center and Chelsea, and all the way down to the southern tip at Battery Park City. This indispensable guide also covers the outer boroughs, from Snug Harbor, Staten Island to the Socrates Sculpture Park and the Noguchi Museum in Queens, from Wave Hill in the Bronx all the way to the botanical gardens in Brooklyn.

The perfect guidebook for residents and tourists alike, Harrison and Rosenfeld uncover nooks and crannies off the beaten track alongside favored treasures, reminding us all why New York City is the art capital of the world.

Editorial Reviews

George M. Jenks
The third edition of Artwalks, substantially revised and updated with seven new walks, leads readers through various sections of the city, highlighting what the authors consider to be public art, whether seen outdoors or within the confines of museums and other buildings. With directions on how to get there by subway and car, plus excellent and easy-to-read maps, Artwalks has much to offer the art lover, including off-the-beaten-path suggestions like the Chinese Scholar's Garden at Snug Harbor on Staten Island ("not to be missed") and the Ukrainian Institute of America on East 79th Street. A helpful section, "Choosing an Outing," lists walks by subject, such as parks or flower gardens.

These two books, both written by anthropologists, tour old and new New York City. The third edition of Artwalks, substantially revised and updated with seven new walks, leads readers through various sections of the city, highlighting what the authors consider to be public art, whether seen outdoors or within the confines of museums and other buildings. With directions on how to get there by subway and car, plus excellent and easy-to-read maps, Artwalks has much to offer the art lover, including off-the-beaten-path suggestions like the Chinese Scholar's Garden at Snug Harbor on Staten Island ("not to be missed") and the Ukrainian Institute of America on East 79th Street. A helpful section, "Choosing an Outing," lists walks by subject, such as parks or flower gardens. Touring Gotham's Archaeological Past takes a similar approach, offering tours that are all walks (e.g., to the Wall Street district) except the harbor tour, which ferries readers to several islands where digs have uncovered artifacts from windmills to a sunken ferry. Photographs of artifacts, houses, and buildings, plus a general bibliography and bibliographic sources for each tour, complete the guide's coverage. Both titles are recommended for large public and academic libraries.-George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
”Art enthusiasts who also love the big city will relish this third revised, updated edition.”

-The Bookwatch,

”East side, west side, all around the town—this handy, pocket-sized guide is a great tool for the wanderer in search of those out-of-the-way treasures that New York is abundantly full of. Revised and updated, Artwalks is a must for the discerning curious.”

-Art Times,

”Opinions are freely given about the quality of work one will see, and there is real concern shown for such creature comforts as finding relief for sore feet after a visit to the Met. Historical and other background details are provided throughout each walk, which even the most inveterate New Yorker will find compelling.”

-American Reference Books Annual,

”The third edition of Artwalks, substantially revised and updated with seven new walks, leads readers through various sections of the city, highlighting what the authors consider to be public art, whether seen outdoors or within the confines of museums and other buildings. With directions on how to get there by subway and car, plus excellent and easy-to-read maps, Artwalks has much to offer the art lover, including off-the-beaten-path suggestions like the Chinese Scholar's Garden at Snug Harbor on Staten Island ('not to be missed') and the Ukrainian Institute of America on East 79th Street. A helpful section, 'Choosing an Outing,' lists walks by subject, such as parks or flower gardens.... [R]ecommended.”
