Hancock’s sprightly, energy-filled drawings suggest alternative paths and tours for all those eager to discover the Big Apple or re-discover their own city… www.allthebuildingsinnewyork.com
Indeed, New Yorkers and tourists will recognize the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the United Nations, will also appreciate the buildings of New York City—Soho boutiques, timeless Brooklyn brownstones, and rows of busy markets in Chinatown… But will also discover/re-discover the beauty the unfamiliar architecture.
We often do not notice next door great architecture we pass by everyday. It has always been there and we ended up giving it for granted or, when we travel, we tend to head straight to architectural blockbuster monuments leaving behind great buildings like they were extras in a movie!
