This Is New York
The charm and uniqueness of New York City was never more beautifully and whimsically created for children than in Miroslav Sasek's This Is New York. First published in 1960, his vision of New York nearly forty years ago still remains fresh: the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the ethnic neighborhoods, the awe-inspiring architecture. Sasek captured the essences of New York that delight children and parents, many of whom who will remember the book from their childhood.
