"The story of New York City, like that of an ancient myth, needs to be told again and again, because the drama never ends and because the past appears different depending on when you pause to look back. Ric Burns and James Sanders have published a hefty but fleetly narrated volume that starts with Henry Hudson's arrival in 1609 and ends with the most current of the city's innumerable recoveries. The illustrations are so luscious they're practically edible, and the writing is lively and well researched. What makes the book a joy is all the varied and vibrant New York voices and images so vivid you want to dive in." -Justin Davidson, New York magazine

"The passionate desire to explore and celebrate is evident in Ric Burns and Janes Sanders' updated and expanded edition of their landmark book, New York: An Illustrated History. The only book of its kind, this beautifully illustrated volume spans four centuries from 1625 until today, documenting spirit of the 'City of Dreams' from revolution and resistance to the resilience of its inhabitants-capturing all that is extraordinary and heartbreaking about this wonderful city, 'so nice they named it twice.'" -A. M. Homes, author of May We Be Forgiven and The Mistress's Daughter
