Description: "A young New Yorker invites us and a friend from the Midwest to join her on a tour of all her favourite places in New York. From the towering Empire State Building to the sights and sounds of Chinatown at night, the Museum of Natural History with its giant barosaurus, and the spectacular Fourth of July fireworks over the New York skyline, this is a visual celebration of one of the most fascinating cities in the world."
Illustrated throughout with stunning, double-spread, full-page paintings – including a pull-out panoramic view of the Empire State Building and the vista from its viewing deck; and another showing the construction of a skyscraper (unfortunately, it has been torn.). Pastedowns and endpapers have a beautiful, colour map of NYC featuring all major streets and landmarks.
Glazed pictorial boards. Rear cover scratched. Spine and corners bumped. A handful of pages are lightly creased from handling, but – apart from the one that is torn – all are in very good condition.
