Magnetic City: A Walking Companion to New York
For nearly a decade, Pulitzer prize-winning critic Justin Davidson has explained New York, the city, to his readers at New York, the magazine. He has visited new and preserved buildings; explored neighborhoods in mid-transformation; interviewed architects, developers, and urban thinkers; and tracked the city's constant change. Now, he distills those experiences into Magnetic City- A walking guide to New York-the city around us, the one that's lost, and the one that's still to come. Essayistic in form, historical in scope, and filled with references to literature, music, art, and architecture, Magnetic Cityoffers first-time visitors and lifelong residents a new way to see New York.
