A master photographer's love affair with his home city

New York has been the subject for countless photographs. But few have had a feel for the city that Jay Maisel has.

Jay has been photographing New York since the '50s. His home is located far downtown, but he has shot every part of the city -- from street level, looking down from rooftops and bridges. His aerial shots are moody, poetic, amazing by turns.

This book is filled with spectacular sights -- marathon runners on bridges, sunlight and moonlight reflecting off mirror walls onto the river, the awesome mass of skyscrapers bunched against blue skies. It's also about New York's people. It has the most surprising faces and details you'll see in any book about cities, gleaned from a lifetime of being on the scene.

Jay Maisel's New York is one of the most beautiful books of the year.
