The book is a cultural cartography of New York, which traces—in words and pictures—the subtle, invisible currents in the metropolis. It focuses on the subjective point of view, such as Brooklyn from the perspective of writer Jonathan Lethem, and the consequences of 11 September 2001 from that of journalist Adrian Kreye. All genres can be found here: from the photo-essay to the story to the comic. Together, they form a cultural map of the city.
