These images are complimented by writing from some of New York’s most respected contemporary authors, adding depth, context, and personal stories of their own experiences to those presented by the photographers. This engaging book captures the energy of the New York night and the city’s evolving hotspots, building a history of how New Yorkers play after dark and how that helps make this city a cultural and entertainment powerhouse.
