One of 11 engravings for ‘New York Revisited’, written by Kenneth Auchincloss and published by the Grolier Club, 2002 - a truly beautiful book printed by Gaylord Schanilec at his press in Wisconsin, Midnight Paper Sales. A great tribute to New York and New Yorkers. The book was intended as a modern day reply to a Grolier Club book on New York printed in 1915 however, it took on a new importance as its publication coincided with the attack on New York in September 2001.
