"Variety, color, spirit, and humor - these are the qualities of life on Manhattan's busy Upper West Side. This neighborhood has it all, form the world's most luxurious apartment buildings to modest row houses and tenements; from sleepy local businesses to bustling cafes that draw patrons from all over the city and beyond. There are families here that have lived on the Upper West Side for generations; their neighbors today include movie stars, politicians, and writers. In this engaging volume, using a fanciful and unusually personal approach, artist Robert Miles Parker gives us a view not just of the architecture of the neighborhood, but of the life there. In more than 200 black-and-white drawings, accompanied by lively captions, the artist has captured the diversity of this rich and interesting area. Includes 200 Illustrations"
