"Cecil Beaton is as much at home in New York is in his native London, and the book is a record of impressions accumulated as a result of many winters spent in the most astonishing and paradoxical city in the world. He has captured the spirit of Manhattan as only a foreigner can, from a Bowery flophouse to his Louis Seize bed in the Waldorf, from a highbrow party in Harlem to a low brow ball on fifth Avenue." from the front flap.
