Whether you are a new tourist to NYC or a tried and true native, this book has something for everybody.

In 200 full color pages Kuper paints a vibrant picture of Manhattan. Through comics, illustrations and sketchbook drawings he delivers everything from the low life to the high energy that has long made New York the most exciting city in the world. As he describes in his introduction:
"Drawn to New York is a portrait of this city I love, both its darkness and light. It's a reflection of thirty-four years on twelve miles of island with eight million people in a city whose story is ever being written."
