Overview

From Matteo Pericoli, the celebrated author of Manhattan Unfurled, comes a unique collection of illustrated cityscapes.

The City Out My Window shows us a series of private New Yorks, as seen by Tom Wolfe, Tony Kushner, Nora Ephron, Stephen Colbert, Richard Meier, Oliver Sacks, Mario Batali, David Byrne, and other artists, writers, and thinkers who help make the city what it is. The book includes their comments on what they see out their window and is introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Delightful paean...elegant." — New York Times

"[An] amazing book." — The New York Daily News

"New Yorkers will never look out their windows the same way again." — Women's Wear Daily

"There is a lot of beauty — and more than a little wisdom — in The City Out My Window." — Connecticut Post

"Pericoli reveals not just the landscape of the city, but the landscape of the city's greatest minds. Art is the bones of New York City and in the blood of its inhabitants. Pericoli creates a tapestry out of the inevitable and elegant interplay of people and place." — Popmatters.com

"The City Out My Window offers an intimate sense of the quiet these residents, artists, writers, and composers enjoy and their constant connection with their city through their view. Reading this book, you gain a new sense of what people seek when they find their ideal home, even in crowded New York City...The variety among the 63 charming drawings shows Pericoli's ability to capture the spirit of the city with simple lines." — Blogcritics.org
