520    From the ground, New York City can feel like a chaotic 
       jumble of traffic, pedestrians, one-way streets, parks, 
       and buildings of every shape and size. But above the city,
       away from the cacophony and the commotion, New York can be
       tranquil and awe-inspiring. The city that never sleeps 
       also never stops changing, which is why this phenomenal 
       collection of historic maps and aerial photos is a 
       fascinating way to explore New York's evolution. The book 
       opens with maps of 17th-century Manhattan, a quiet 
       settlement with a ragged shoreline. A series of 
       chronological illustrations show the city's northward 
       expansion, the establishment of its grid system, and the 
       creation of Central Park. The next three chapters include 
       aerial photographs that chart the city's unbelievable 
       expansion in every direction, including skyward. As 
       buildings rise, as the shoreline expands with ports and 
       landfills, and as more sophisticated photographic 
       techniques allow for breathtaking views of New York's 
       unmistakable skyline, this lush, oversized book captures a
       city that is truly alive. Author Peter Skinner's 
       commentaries on the photographs and maps will guide 
       readers through what is certain to become a treasured book
       for all who love New York.
