The general idea can be read in the description: the author distributed blank Manhattan maps both to random people in the street and to selected more famous New Yorkers. The result is a colorful mix of very different interpretations, of what Manhattan is: a scene of love, terror, work, transport, special places, complicated life stories, and so on.

Personally, I am always fascinated by the intervined fates of people and cities, a very classic example of which is "Berlin Alexanderplatz" by the German author Alfred Döblin. Obviously, this book is a completely different take on the subject, and a couple of decades have passed by since, but the general idea that a city has a soul and forms part of the life of people that live in it, is the same concept.

This is probably not a book that you read from page 1 to the end - it invites for a casual stroll, discovering the different maps, and diving in and out. The material and general layout is really nice, so I guess both facts and the above mentioned creative concept behind the book make it a good present for anyone that has a connection to NY.

Overall, two thumbs up for this great project!

I love it. Everyone has a different take on Manhattan and this book gives a good glimpse. Even better, at the end of the book you can interpret your own version of Manhattan on paper.
