Reviews - What do customers think about Manhattan Dawn and Dusk?

A very good book...  Nov 14, 2003
Jon Ortner takes exceptional photographs. For New York City lovers, it truly doesn't get any better than this. Though I live about 70 miles from Manhattan (Long Island, NY), I rarely get the opportunity to visit, making this book perfect for me. This book truly brings the best of Manhattan right to you.
Mr. Ortner covers all aspects of the city, including climbing to the top of the famous Verrazano Narrows Bridge (Brooklyn- Staten Island, NY) and taking exceptional view photos.
This book is a wonderful buy. $42 is worth it. You won't be sorry you purchased it!
The definitive New York pictorial  Aug 18, 2002
If you're looking for just one volume of photographs of The Big Apple, you've found the one to buy. I've just completed my 6th visit to New York since 1997, and I'm so glad I found this book. Believe me -- I'm really picky about this sort of thing, and each one of Jon Ortner's photographs is breathtaking. All the other New York books don't even begin to compare with this one. Looking through this book is like being back in New York again. All the major sites of Manhattan are there -- The Statue of Liberty, The Empire State Building, Central Park and more.

Don't hesitate to buy this book.

It was so beautiful!  Sep 15, 2001
I found this book by chance in a 2nd hand bookstore the day when the towers of the WTC collapsed. It brought tears to my eyes to see how impressive and beautiful the skyline and these buildings were.

The pictures in this book are excellent and show the city in the mellow light of early morning and evening. My favorite is the one showing the Statue of Liberty with the WTC towers behind it, almost dwarfing it. For me this picture captures the essence of NYC.

Manhattan Dawn and Dusk  Oct 29, 2000
An excellent book for your coffee table.

The photography is superb. Many well known structures and locations are photographed from angles that provide the reader a new and interesting perspective. Starting from the New York Harbor and working north, Mr. Ortner covers all the important locations, from the Financial Distict and Soho through Midtown and Central Park to the upper East and West sides of the island known as Manhattan.

Accompanying the photos are captions that permit the reader to discover interesting new facts about the Big Apple.

The double gatefolds and glorious full color prints are an excellent choice as a gift, as a souvenir or just as a relaxing book. Whether you reside in the city, desire to visit someday or just enjoy beautiful pictures, it is a book that you and your family will truly enjoy.
