New York: The Photo Atlas
By Getmapping

    New York - the city that never sleeps--From its bright lights of Broadway to its majestic views of the Brooklyn Bridge, New York is a state overflowing with excitement.

I feel very fortunate to have made a once-in-a-lifetime trip to this wonderful state in June of this year. I never dreamed that one state could offer such a wealth of life-changing experiences. Many pictures were taken to capture my short stay, and even now, as I look back at the photos, I can feel my adrenaline flowing at an all time high.

    To help keep the memories fresh in my mind, I was able to find the ideal book that gave me a unique new perspective. New York.The Photo Atlas is complied of aerial shots of all the streets, buildings, and landmarks that make New York stand in a class by itself. All five boroughs are included as well as several New York and New Jersey Suburbs. Its hardbound coffee table size begs to be placed in anyone's front room.

    There were many things that I feel make this book special. One of the most amazing is the series of photographs that were used to create it, all completed in a short four-week time period. They seem to project the viewer into the scene, in the sense that they fly high above the massive buildings and endless streets. The realism of this book had me almost able to hear the roar of the helicopter as it dived lower for the perfect shot.

      New Yorkers, tourists, or just those that are curious will all rejoice when they open the first page and see the 'Big Apple' reaching out to take them to places they never dreamed. Your guests will be attracted to this one-of-a- kind book by its glossy pictures that reach out and touch the hearts of all of those who open its compelling cover. I know it has found a permanent place in my home, for it is a book that I know I will pass on to future generations.
