Overview

Unique perspectives on New York's 843-acre Central Park viewed exclusively from windows and terraces on all four sides. One hundred forty-three photographs range from intimate fourth-floor scenes to sweeping vistas from 64 stories above the Park. The principal photographer of six books on gardens and landscape architecture, the author concentrates on the landscape of Central Park, revealing its beauty from above during all four seasons, from early morning to night. The photographer's journey took her to more than 100 apartments, offices, hotels, and museums over the course of five years. This book includes quotes by sixteen notable individuals about their experiences of looking down from their windows to the Park, including Giorgio Armani, Candice Bergen, Paul Goldberger, Evelyn Lauder, Donald Trump, and Elie Wiesel. Windows on Central Park will strengthen one's sense of the grandeur and beauty of America's most visited park, and reveal the Park as a towering example of both urban ecology and landscape architecture.
