From the Publisher
"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."
"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 enthusiasts who also love the big city will relish this third revised, updated edition."
"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."
