from M. Sasek’s children’s classic, This is New York


The charm and uniqueness of New York City was never more beautifully  and whimsically created for children than in Miroslav Sasek’s This Is New York.  First published in 1960, his vision of New York nearly forty years ago  still remains fresh:
the hustle and bustle of Times Square, 
the ethnic  neighborhoods,
the awe-inspiring architecture. 


Sasek captured the  essences of New York

 that delight children and parents, 
 many of whom who  will remember the book from their childhood.
