    As a New Yorker I sometimes find myself wondering about the architecture that surrounds me in my daily life. Patrice Krajka's book organizes many of the interesting buildings downtown by style and even provides maps should you want to follow in his footsteps and see them in person. The photography is also top notch and helps to convey the beauty of the architecture.
  • A perfect Valentine for our city!

    Wonderful book! I love the five-walk concept and how the photographer captures light. Will definitely take my family on one of the walks sometime soon. Thanks for creating such a gorgeous book during a time when we could all use more beauty in our lives.

    This is an incredibly thoughtful book that brings New York alive right at a time when we are all hunkered down and avoiding the outside. It’s important to remember where we are and how beautiful and challenging the city is. It will come back to us but until then, we have this gorgeous reminder of our home.
  • NYC architectural treasures beautifully captured!

    I love this book! What a treasure... I have lived and/or worked in NYC since 1982 and was thus delighted to “stroll along” with Mr. Krajka to either rediscover, or discover for the first time, highlights of of some of the city’s most beautiful architecture. Mr. Krajka has a wonderful (and interesting) eye in the way he captures his subjects. Not only are his photographs beautiful, I loved that he included a snippet of history next to each photo (who knew!). Thank you Mr. Krajka for allowing me to rediscover my city, all over again!
