Books on NYC

Collecting Books on NYC

As a country girl who was born and raised in the South, I've always had a love affair with New York.

The architecture, music, art, people, glamour, drama and yes, even the gritty parts of the city are fascinating to me. It's a city of myths and legends.

Gangs. The mafia. Wall Street. Central Park. Tiffany's. Beats and punks. Jazz. Museums. The subway.

This gallery contains some of the best fiction and nonfiction portraying one of the greatest cities in the world. Feel free to add your favorites in the comments section!

Catherine Campbell is an author, and used to be our marketing coordinator before she ran away. Maybe to NYC?
