Walk With Me: New York (Hardcover)
From photographer Susan Kaufman, an intimate celebration of the beauty and charm of New York City
For some people, New York City exists only in their imaginations, a big-screen beacon of wonder and twenty-four seven delight. For others, it’s a dream destination: the diverse urban center where they will finally feel they belong. And still for many, it’s the place they already call home. No matter how you view New York, longtime fashion editor and photographer Susan Kaufman will help you see the city with fresh, appreciative eyes.
As she travels with her camera through New York, Susan Kaufman invites readers to see the city as she does: from the sidewalk. She explores the beauty of the city found in its charming townhouses, decorated shops, lovely parks, shop facades, and serene streetscapes. New York may be known as the city that never sleeps, but beneath the bustle, there’s a soulful side, with its own quiet power and universal allure. Walk with Me New York invites readers to appreciate the streets and buildings that have made the world’s most iconic city survive centuries of change yet retain its vitality and aspirational magnetism.

"Walk With Me" is a lovely reminder for us all to slow down and be more reflective. Linger for moment and admire the flowers in a window box, the history of a street, or the door of a West Fourth Street brownstone. These small discoveries, these photo-worthy moments, especially in one's own hometown, offer us a bit of balance in a fast-paced world.”
