Overview


The New York skyline is arguably one of the most distinctive on Earth. At night, however, the city’s numerous landmarks are transformed from the familiar into the new. Following the success of Merrell’s London at Night, award-winning aerial photographer Jason Hawkes offers a dramatic, night-time perspective on one of the world’s most iconic locations. From the vantage point of a helicopter, Hawkes captures the magical, almost abstract quality of such familiar sights as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the Empire State Building as seen after dark, as well as revealing some of New York’s less well-known vistas. Featuring an informative introduction and extended captions by the New York Times journalist Christopher Gray, New York at Night is a unique and often breathtaking record of the city that truly never sleeps.
