NONSTOP METROPOLIS: A NEW YORK CITY ATLAS is the final volume in a trio of atlases edited by Rebecca Solnit and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro, this art-book of reimagined maps of New York takes the reader on a voyage of discovery. Bringing together insights from urbanists, ethnographers, music historians, and environ- mental journalists, and illustrated by cartographers, artists, and photographers, the book explores all five boroughs in a new way. Delightful maps illustrate everything from riots and women's rights to music and the forces of change (Wildlife, pictured).
