This is the best photographic book I have ever seen. Its pictures of The Big Apple are magnificent! Comparative pictures taken in years past, many in the 1920s, show how sections of the city have changed. Whether one is a fan of New York and who isn't, you will enjoy this book. It makes me want all the other "Above" books now.
A thoughtful view of the city
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 21 years ago
Robert Cameron's book, "Above New York", is one of the best photographic books that I've seen in recent years. Some areas of the city are chronicled from an historic perspective, while other areas are displayed in their modern beauty. I appreciate the juxtaposition of the older photos with their more modern counterparts. His views of downtown are especially well-done, and in light of recent times, it was a comfort to see the skyline in the traditional beauty. The view of the Twin Towers rising from the battery with Lady Liberty in the foreground seems especially meaningful in these times when our freedom seems threatened.
BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF NEW YORK CITY!

Robert Cameron's book is breathtaking and very beautiful. Natives of the City, tourists and new citizens of NYC will love this book, because it gives you a prospective of the city that most visitors never see. The photos are a graphic map to the avenues, streets, parks and buildings that are a part of this great American city. The pictures are sharp and clear. The color is vivid and thought provoking. This is a must for anyone who would like to know more about New York City. This is a great addition to anyone's library and it is a real conversation piece.
It captures the vitality of New York City.

Cameron reveals a new perspective of NYC from the air. This book allows you to see the many types of architecture and styles throughout the city and the surrounding boros. "Above New York" is by far my favorite photography book to date.
