This photographic census of New York City, inspired by and based on the blog of the same name, contains 400 color photos of, well, the humans of New York. It pairs portraits of children, commuters, ballet students, couples, hipsters, injured cyclists, and many other types of New Yorkers with quotes ("I got car doored"), captions, mini-essays, or snippets of conversation. While most are full-body photos, others provide close-ups of faces -- or feet! -- and colorfully capture the many possibilities that a stroll through New York offers. An immediate bestseller, Humans of New York
will appeal to readers who enjoy the stories that photos -- or their captions -- can convey.
