By Miroslav Sasek

With the same wit and perception that distinguished his stylish books on Paris, London, and Rome, M. Sasek pictures fabulous, big-hearted New York City in This is New York, first published in 1960 and now updated for the twenty-first century. The Dutchman who bought the island of Manhattan from the Native Americans in 1626 for twenty-four dollars' worth of handy housewares little knew that his was the biggest bargain in American history. For everything about New York is bigthe buildings, the traffic jams, the cars, the stories, the Sunday papers. Here is the Staten Island Ferry, the Statue of Liberty, MacDougal Alley in Greenwich Village, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Harlem, Chinatown, and Central Park.
