Reviews

"What a find! You Are Here: N.Y.C. provides a delightfully ingenious perspective on territory that most readers might view as familiar. Witty essays by Sarah Boxer, Bob Mankoff, Maria Popova, and others accompany a four-century cartographical treasure chest that includes Andy Warhol's Central Park, Saul Bellow's "View of the World from Ninth Avenue," a 1950s proposed subway bomb shelter, the 1908 pneumatic telegram service, a pigeon's aerial view, and a map made up of newspapers dated Sept. 11, 2001." - The New York Times
