      The author photographs 72 New Yorkers who are then described in short two page essays. These are New York originals: eccentrics, both high brow and low brow that cumulatively give the city its special feel.

      This is a very enjoyable piece about some of the eccentric characters inhabiting Gotham. If you live here, you probably know or are acquainted with at least a couple of them. Very fun, light reading.
