This extraordinary book offers a complete New York experience, from Broadway to Central Park, from skyscrapers to below the streets. Created by New York City 100, the nonprofit group founded during New York City's centennial year to celebrate the city's rich heritage, this commemorative book brings together miniature facsimiles, historic resources, artistic inspiration, and literary insight to depict the world's greatest metropolis.
The book bursts with an array of surprises. Paper engineers have fashioned the city's great monuments into 19 pop-up masterpieces, including:
* the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Temple of Dendur
* Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum
* a removable Statue of Liberty
* the Brooklyn Bridge-- cables and all
* the newly restored Grand Central Terminal and the subways and underground world beneath it
* Christmas at Rockefeller Center
* New Year's eve in Times Square
* the world's tallest pop-up of the world's most famous skyscraper, the Empire State Building.
Renowned New York artists have worked with the paper engineers to create unique pop-ups of their original artwork:
* Al Hirschfeld offers his rendition of Guys & Dolls
* Red Grooms presents a spontaneous encounter on a park bench in Greenwich Village
* Alex Katz lets us into his SoHo loft
* Jules Feiffer presents us an inimitable view of Central Park.
The New York Pop-Up Book also includes a postcard collection of curators' choices from their own museums and miniature front pages of The New York Times and the Daily News drawn from the city's top news stories through the century.
