Overview


The lights of Times Square during the jazz age, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler and the Flatiron buildings--and the entire Manhattan skyline festooned with fireworks on the Fourth of July! They're all here along with many other city landmarks in vintage lithographs of New York after dark, selected from New York's renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art collection. But this book's most unusual feature is an array of tiny diodes that actually light building windows and the night sky itself when the pages are turned. Here is a dramatic picture book for grownups--a visitors' souvenir of the city that never sleeps. But this prideful salute to Gotham is a book that also deserves an honored place on the bookshelves of native New Yorkers.
