Staff Picks: Humans of New York

Most books about New York City focus on the iconic architecture and landmark public spaces, but Humans of New York and Humans of New York: Stories focus on the human element. They capture the city, which is often a microcosm of the world, at the people level.

The photography is stunning and revealing and touches on the vast variety of the people that thrive or survive in the city. All walks of life, all ages and ethnicities; I could people watch all day when I visit. These books allow for that experience in a small way from the comfort of home in Georgia.
